Abstract

A distributed-feedback (DFB) dye laser that is pumped by a standing Bessel-beam wave is constructed. Because of the long line focus of the Bessel beam, the laser medium is pumped in only a very thin filament (a few micrometers) along the optical axis. At the same time, longitudinal-mode selection is achieved because of the DFB effect. It is demonstrated that when the effective wavelength of the Bessel pump beam is varied, the Bragg wavelength for DFB is altered, and as a result the output wavelength can be tuned.
