Paper Abstract

A commercially available pulsed dye laser equipped with Hansch oscillator and intracavity etalon has been converted into a single-mode laser with less than 100 MHz bandwidth by extending the pulse duration to 50 ns and modifying the optical elements. In particular an intracavity etalon of high finesse provides for emission of a single longitudinal mode, although strong mode-pulling occurs. Further, λ/4 plates have been used in order to avoid the effect of spatial hole-burning.
