Paper Abstract

Pyrromethene-BF2 (PM) complexes doped in modified polymethyl methacrylate were evaluated and show excellent laser efficiency and damage resistance when excited at 532 nm. The spectroscopy and laser performance of a new laser dye (PM511) is discussed with emission below 550 nm. In addition, the enhanced sensitization and dual wavelength operation of dyes doped in the solid-state are demonstrated between 550 - 650 nm.
