The prospects for preparing active laser media for the near-IR range based on polymethine dyes are considered. General ways of optimization of the fluorescence quantum yield, Stokes shifts, bandwidths, and lasing efficiency as functions of polymethine structure and solvent nature are analyzed. It is shown that asymmetric polymethine dyes are most promising for generation in the near-IR range.
