Currently, there is a growing interest in the development of multi-colored materials based on the combination of two or more systems (organic or inorganic) as a strategy to take advantage of their combined physical or chemical properties. These multi-colored materials have found potential applications as sensors, amplifiers, and optical fibers. In this work, the physical characteristics of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) doped with Terbium(III)-tris-(2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-heptanedionate) (Tb(tmhd)3)at1.57–1.58 mmol and Rhodamine B (RhB) at different concentrations were analyzed. The emission obtained from these samples (multichromophoric samples) varied as function of RhB concentration due to an efficient energy transfer process (33–65%). The role of PMMA as inert matrix that assists in the recombination process was confirmed by FTIR and Raman spectra analysis. More-over, an improvement in thermal resistance of the materials was observed due to the presence of the dopants during the polymerization process.
