Paper Abstract

In synchronously pumped or passively mode-locked cw dye lasers, traveling-wave operation in the gain-jet is found to lead to better locking than standing wave. On the other hand, standing-wave in the saturable absorber-jet gives better locking in passively mode-locked lasers. Key considerations leading to these conclusions are reviewed. 0.4 psec for synchronously pumped tunable dye lasers and 60 fsec for passively locked nontunable dye lasers are obtained experimentally. *
