A quasi-end-fire (QEF) pumping scheme was proposed and studied as a novel laser-pumping-scheme for a laser-dye-doped plastic waveguide laser with distributed feedback. This pumping scheme resembled longitudinal pumping, but also has the advantage of controllable absorption length of the injected pump beam. A first demonstration of the QEF was performed and the pumping beam controlling was also investigated.
