Abstract

Broadband (up to 70-nm) femtosecond to picosecond laser pulses are generated from synchronously pumped dye lasers. We demonstrate that such well-collimated broadband laser pulses can facilitate pump-and-probe experiments by measuring the evolution of the transmission spectrum of a Schott RG830 doped glass after being pumped by 1.4-psec, 532-nm pulses.
