Studies of the lasing characteristics of three pyrromethene laser dyes (pyrromethene 567, 580 and 597) in modified polymethyl methacrylate have been carried out under flashlamp excitation. Comparison are made of the optical qualities, output energy and other lasing properties. Output energies of over 1 Joule per shot have been achieved with an electrical stored energy to output energy efficiency of almost 0.5%.
