Purpose ‐ This paper aims to provide a technical insight into recent developments in organic lasers and their applications to sensing. Design/methodology/approach ‐ Following a review of progress in organic lasers, this paper considers a number of recent sensor developments based on this technology. Finally, future prospects are briefly considered. Findings ‐ This shows that organic lasers are the tropic of a major research effort. The broad aims are to reduce the optical pumping power and ultimately to achieve purely electrical operation. Few sensors based on organic lasers have yet been reported but recent examples include explosive vapour detectors, lab-on-a-chip devices and biosensors. Originality/value ‐ This paper provides a review of organic laser developments and sensors that exploit this technology.
