Abstract : Two new pyrromethene-BF2 dyes P-556 and P-567 were tested for cw laser Operation. P-556 demonstrated a significant advance in the 530-620 nm region over commercially dyes currently available, where the best cw dyes in any range have peak efficiencies on the order of 35% and dyes in this range typically less than 25%. The P-556 has a cw efficiency of 45% at the peak.
