Abstract

As we have shown recently [1–3], distributed feedback dye lasers (DFDLs) are a new type of source for the generation of picosecond light pulses. DFDLs are relatively simple in construction and produce stable single pulses without need for a special pulse selecting device. Their range of operation extends through the visible to the near uv part of the spectrum [4]. Smooth tuning can be achieved by several techniques [2]. It is easy to set up an oscillator-amplifier system for DFDL pulses which is pumped by a single N2-laser [5]. Synchronization is greatly facilitated this way.
