Abstract

We present the first reported experimental study of the properties and characteristics of the injected cw ring dye laser together with a new method of injection locking for cw sources. The injection thresholds and the intracavity powers below and above threshold have been investigated as a function of the pump power, the injecting radiation power, and the frequency detuning. The experimental results, in good agreement with a theoretical analysis previously proposed, demonstrate the possibility to obtain higher single-frequency powers.
