Abstract

A theoretical and experimental investigation of cavity dumped flashlamp pumped dye lasers is described. Theory predicts that pulse time compressions of the order of 10–20 can be obtained without loss in energy efficiency. Experimental confirmation was obtained with a coaxial flashlamp dye laser. Over 300 mJ of output was obtained in a 20-nsec pulse at 490 nm.
