Abstract
We report on the design of a synchronously pumped dye laser using the hybrid mode-locking technique to generate subpicosecond pulses. A detailed description of the optical cavity is given. Pumped by the second harmonic pulse train from a CW mode-locked Nd: YAG laser, the dye laser has produced pulses as short as .6 psec (FNTA of the autocorrelation trace) in the R6G and styryl 9 frequency range. The efficiency of the DODC and IR 140 dyes used as saturable absorbers is discussed. The problems associated with the design of a dye laser synchronously pumped by the second harmonic train of a mode-locked, Q-switched Nd: YAG laser are examined. We report on a dye laser which has produced as much as 50 μJ in a single pulse.
