In common glowsticks, diphenyl oxalate reacts with hydrogen peroxide, forming 1,2-dioxetanedione. The dioxetanedione is unstable, but direct decomposition to carbon dioxide is a forbidden transition, so this can only happen in a reaction with another molecule. If the other molecule is a suitable fluophore dye, the dye molecule will become exited and then emit a photon of light. (The color depending on the fluophore used.)
Some types of lasers make use of forbidden transitions: atoms or molecules are brought into an excited state such that the transition to the ground state is forbidden and thus slowed down. This causes the exited state molecules to collect, forming a population inversion. The excited molecules can then undergo stimulated emission in a resonance cavity, producing the laser effect.
Now my question is if 1,2-dioxetanedione can also be made to undergo stimulated emission if the glow stick chemical reaction takes place in a suitable optical resonance cavity. (It looks to me like it should, but my chemistry knowledge is not enough for this.)
Alternatively, if the 1,2-dioxetanedione cannot undergo stimulated emission, could a suitably chosen dye molecule?
