Paper Abstract

We describe experimental results of the conversion of a commercially available pulsed dye laser into a Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS) dye laser. The dye laser power amplifier served not only as an amplification stage, but also as the SBS mirror medium. We present far- field dye laser and SBS dye laser beam profiles for comparison. The SBS dye laser produced a 56% improvement in the dye laser beam brightness. These results have important implications for improved nonlinear frequency conversion processes such as frequency doubling/mixing or optical parametric oscillation.
