Abstract

We report a new configuration of a picosecond distributed feedback dye laser system, which can be pumped by various wavelengths. The optical characteristics of the system are presented. By using a triangle mirror functioned beam splitter and a right-angle prism attached to the front face of the cell in the pumping geometry, continuously and widely tunable laser wavelengths have been obtained for a range of more than 100 nm. A quenching mirror adhered to a face on the side of the cell, functioning as a high-Q cavity shared common gain medium, has been employed to observe single short laser pulses with transform-limited bandwidth.
