Paper Abstract

The development of truncated stimulated Brillouin scattering (TRUBS) as a means of producing subnanosecond laser pulses is described. Recent experiments carried out with a frequency doubled excimer-pumped dye laser system, incorporating a single longitudinal mode oscillator, and a single stage of amplification in a XeCℓ gain module have yielded subnanosecond (-100 ps) UV pulses with an energy of -2 mJ as well as lower energy pulses shorter than 50 ps. The technique shows considerable promise as a reliable means of obtaining excimer laser pulses in the 10-50 ps range.
