Abstract: The photodegradation of light-emitting polymers was studied by measuring the decay of the photoluminescence with exposure time to He-Cd laser beam at room temperature. It was found that the photoluminescence intensity decreases very fast initially, and then tends to saturate on the order of several tens of minutes. More interestingly, it was found that the degradation induced by laser beam can be self-healed. By stopping the exposure of the sample to the laser beam, the photoluminescence intensity recovers gradually without any treatment.
