A dye immersed in a polymer matrix represents a promising material class for organic polariton lasers. While polariton condensation has been established for boron-dipyrromethene blends, it has yet to be extended to other small dye blends. Here, we demonstrate polariton lasing in a molecularly isolated perylene diimide immersed in polystyrene. The emission exhibits threshold behavior, strong directionality, and slight blueshifting of organic polariton systems. We expect that continuous exploration of new dyes will allow improved performance in organic polariton lasing.
