Abstract

Tunable bandwidth-limited light pulses exhibiting ~3-psec FWHM duration and 2–7 μJ/pulse have been obtained at repetition rates up to ~5 Hz with good mode-locking quality in a transverse-flow flashlamp-pumped rhodamine 590 laser mode-locked with 3,3′-diethyl-oxadicarbocyanine iodide (DODCI). The present picosecond laser design can be extended to higher repetition rates, pulse energies, and average powers.
