Lasers using organic dyes for the lasing medium hold great promise as sources of tunable coherent light over the visible and near infrared portions of the spectrum.14 We have designed and constructed a flashlamp-pumped dye laser that uses standard commercial components and produces tunable light in the blue, green, and orange portions of the spectrum. In constructing this laser we have paid careful attention to the equations describing flashlamp-driving circuits. In this article we discuss the… Expand
