Abstract

Subnanosecond optical pulses (as short as 7 psec) have been generated over the 0.58–0.80-μm wavelength range with good beam quality, energies in excess of 1 μJ/pulse (up to 20 μJ/pulse), and repetition rates of at least 10 Hz using a flashlamp-pumped dye laser. The experimental details concerned with mode locking the dye laser and the selection of single pulses from the pulse train with an energy reproducibility of 10% are described.
