Paper Abstract

The application of liquid crystal spatial light modulation devices to reducing deleterious phase distortions on beam quality in flashlamp pumped dye lasers was investigated. Due to the birefringence and nematic properties of the liquid crystal devices (LCDs), the LCDs behaved as tunable etalons when used intra-cavity. Using a grating with a multi-prism Littrow configuration and the LCD intra-cavity, linewidths on the order of 100 MHz were observed.
