Abstract

A XeCl excimer laser-pumped dye laser generating 40-psec long pulses with 2.5-MW peak power, operating at 382 nm with 10-pps repetition rate is described. Short-pulse generation is achieved by cascade pumping of a quenched dye laser. The laser is simple and versatile. The possibilities of further developments are also discussed.
