Abstract

The passive mode locking of a cw Rhodamine 110 dye laser is reported. In a simple uncompensated linear cavity, subpicosecond pulse generation was achieved over the spectral range 553–570 nm. Pulses as short as 150 fsec were recorded using standard second-harmonic autocorrelation measurement techniques. Two saturable-absorbing species were found to operate successfully in this region.
