The report describes the operation of a high power, repetitively pulsed, flashlamp pumped dye laser. To date an average power of 39 watts at a repetition rate of 100 Hz has been obtained. The techniques employed should be scalable to higher power and higher repetition rate. Experiments to produce frequency sweeping of the laser during the pulse are described. Altimate flashlamp geometries are discussed as are experiments to achieve better spectral matching of the lamp output to the dye.
