    The lasing properties and photostability of 4,4′-CO 2C 4H 9 bis-substituted and azacoumarin AC1F emitting in the blue-green region of the spectrum in polymethyl methacrylate when pumped by XeCl and dye lasers were examined. Results showed that the solid-state active medium based on phenalemine 512 is a very promising candidate for various application in laser systems, while XeCl laser pumping of pyrromethane 580 were less encouraging. In the ethanolic solution with C = 2 mM/L, lasing was obtained at λ = 550.5 nm, Δλ = 1 nm, with an efficiency of 4.6%. The photoconversion quantum yield was approximately 10 -2, which was an order of magnitude higher than rhodamine 6G under the same conditions.
