Single-mode waveguides were fabricated by deep ultraviolet radiation in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). Using a masking process, the radiation modifies the refractive index of the PMMA forming core and cladding regions for waveguiding. Following the fabrication of the waveguides, the small molecule material aluminum tris(8-hydroxyquinoline) doped with the laser dye DCM is deposited directly onto the waveguide structures. By optical pumping (lambda=355 nm) amplified spontaneous emission was observed at the end facets of the waveguides
