Organic solid-state lasers (OSSLs) based on 1D organic crystals have attracted broad attention from researchers owing to the importance of potential applications in optoelectronic fields. 1D OSSLs can be fabricated from various organic molecules under the function of weak intermolecular interactions via numerous methods. The lasing performance of 1D OSSLs can be tuned toward novel optoelectronic applications by modifying the primary 1D morphology through constructing heterogeneous 1D architectures. Here, the recent advances of 1D OSSLs from the aspects of materials, fabrication methods, as well as some enlightening examples of 1D OSSLs with advanced laser performances are reviewed, and an outlook is given providing inspiration for the future development of 1D OSSLs with desired performances.
