Abstract:

Reprints of seven published articles describing work performed at the Naval Weapons Center on laser dyes are included along with a brief discussion of the theory of dye laser degradation, dye fluorescence and quenching, improvements in dye laser lifetimes, flashlamp degradation, luminescent coolants, solvent effects, and new dyes. Techniques for obtaining over a thousand-fold improvement in dye laser lifetimes are described. The discovery of the longest-lived, moderate output, laser dye is reported.
