Paper Abstract

Enhanced output performance from dye lasers and nonlinear frequency doubling and mixing accessories is obtained when pumped with nearly transform limited Q-switched pulses from an injection seeded Nd:YAG oscillator/amplifier. Measurements are reported under a variety of conditions, showing output energy enhancement up to a factor of two. This improvement is explained from the basic theory of the processes involved. Examples of experimental applications that take advantage of the high power, high spectral brightness, and long-term stability of this system are described.
