Paper Abstract

A wavelength and power survey of the 275 nm to 400 nm region has been made with commercial large-frame argon ion lasers operating at elevated discharge currents and various gas pressures. The UV output in the 300 nm to 386 nm region is separated into three groups of lines and used to pump several dyes giving single-frequency tunable outputs from a ring dye laser covering 364 nm to 524 nm. Intracavity frequency doubling with B-BaBA in the ring laser with the dye Stilbene 3 has produced milliwatt level single-frequency output tunable from 215 nm to 235 nm.
