4-Methylumbelliferone fluoresces in the spectral range from the near ultraviolet to the red region if dissolved in acidified mixtures of alcohol and water /1/. In all this spectral region even the Laser treshold can easily be exceeded so that a useful dye Laser has been achieved the strong and polarized radiation of which can be tuned by a swivel-mounted grating /2/. There are at least 5 Laser active species in those solutions.
