Paper Abstract

Coherent ultraviolet light has been generated by frequency doubling of visible wavelength mode-locked pulse trains derived from krypton-ion pumped dye lasers and flashlamp pumped dye lasers operating in a master oscillator/power amplifier configuration. Measurements of the coherence of the resulting ultraviolet pulse trains have shown them to have transform limited frequency spread. Optical heterodyne measurements were made on spinning objects in the visible and translating objects in the ultraviolet at resolutions of sub-cm/s and about 2 cm/s accuracy, respectively.
