Paper Abstract

A tunable organic dye laser pumped by a large co-axial flashlamp is described. The influence of the parameters of the electrical driving circuit and of the dye solution on the lasers output energy is investigated. With a rhodamine 6G solution in methanol, pumped by 10 kJ electrical energy, laser pulses of 2.5 µs duration are ob-tained. Conversion efficiency attains 0.46 %.
