Abstract
Organic dye molecules have fluorescent decay time constants of 4 to 5 nanoseconds. Fluorescence quenching (triplet state) also exists with a time constant of about 50 nano-seconds. The efficiency obtained in lasing dye is then very dependent on the rate in which it is excited. In order to obtain an advantage over laser pumping of dye cells, lamps that operate at high energy with fast rise times are very necessary. This is difficult to do with linear flashlamps because of the relatively high discharge circuit inductance.
