The output of a continuous wave (cw) mode-locked Nd:YAG laser has been compressed and then frequency doubled to provide a new pumping source for a synchronously pumped dye laser. Using Rhodamine 6G, tunable subpicosecond pulses have been generated in both synchronously pumped and synchronously pumped cavity dumped configurations.
