I have only done a small amount of research into these cells and I do not have an exact answer. It appears that the older polymers had limitations (especially thermal) which have been largely overcome by modern polymers. There is not enough information about composition in the e-bay ad to even hazard a guess. I did find a decent, down to earth, article with some info that may be helpful:What do you guys know about using polymer dye cells? Appears they aren't useful to make yellow unless using a wavelength doubled Q-switched ND:YAG. Anyone know the least amount of peak power possible to efficiently produce yellow with these?
They convert high energy, q-switched pulses of 532nm green to yellow. These are a little darker than the 585nm cells we have so probably made for 585nm or 577nm. The end faces are diamond turned with a sort of aspheric convex lens on both ends.www.ebay.com
