Paper Abstract

The result of an experimental study in an ablative flashlamp dye laser using a generalized self-filtering unstable resonator (GSFUR) with a low magnification of M = -1.62 is presented. The output laser beam in both near- and far-field has nearly Gaussian distributions with a pulse duration of ~ 450 ns at the lasing threshold. The laser is characterized by a nearly diffraction-limited beam divergence of 1.1 mrad with superior beam radiance and tolerance to mirror misalignment in comparison with the plane-parallel resonator of equal cavity length.
