Laser-induced molecular luminescence is an exciting new frontier in analytical chemistry. The monochromaticity, coherence, and peak power output of pulsed lasers are all desirable characteristics for fluorescence excitation (1). Tunable dye lasers are of particular interest and applicability to pharmaceutical analysis because they are capable of exciting aromatic molecules over the wavelength range of 360–650 nm by the use of fundamental radiation (2), and over the range of 220–360 nm by the use of second harmonic generation (frequency doubling).
