Temperature tuned distributed feedback dye laser with high repetition rate.

A pulsed subnanosecond laser system is described which is tunable over the spectral range from 450 to 650 nm with a bandwidth of ~0.006 nm and can be operated with a repetition rate of up to 200 Hz. It consists of a mirror tuned distributed feedback dye laser which is directly pumped by a XeCl excimer laser. Fine tuning and accurate stabilization of the dye… (More)
