In this study we have investigated fifteen novel lasing media of organic compounds, which are series of organic molecules with different substitutes, capable of producing laser emission in the region from 600 to 680 nm if pumped by radiation of a XeCl-laser. Ten lasing characteristics of each compound are compared to those of a rhodomine 6G solution. It is shown that although the lasing efficiency (or the efficiency of the XeCl-laser emission conversion) of these compounds is lower they provide longer lifetimes of lasing media compared to that of rhodomine 6G. The relation of an active medium lifetime to light absorption by the photodissociation products in the spectral regions of generation and pumping is analyzed.
