Paper Abstract

The output spectral characteristics of fully saturated pulsed dye amplifiers for multimode input waves having amplitude modulation (AM) are modeled and compared with experimental measurements. The AM input in our experiments was generated by combining the outputs of two single-mode dye lasers. The spectral output of the saturated dye amplifiers consisted of the input frequencies and several sidebands spaced by the input difference or beat frequency. For our experimental system with kiton red dye amplifiers, up to 20% of the output intensity was contained in these sidebands. Sideband production was observed to decrease as the beat frequency increased with a characteristic half-width of approximately 10 GHz.
