Abstract:

Experiments demonstrating stimulated emission of organic dyes in the visible region by pumping with laser second harmonic frequencies are described. The demonstration of efficient spectral narrowing and tunability over a wide spectral range in both liquid and solid organic dye lasers is described. A discussion is also given of experiments concerned with the photo and thermal response of polymethine dyes used for Q-spoiling the Nd lasers. Two articles, one published and one in press, both supported by this contract, are reproduced as appendices.
