Abstract

We report on optimized narrow linewidth (138-MHz ⩽ Δν ⩽ 360-MHz) flashlamp excited dispersive dye laser oscillators yielding extremely low amplified spontaneous emission levels in the 10−10 range. In addition, we specify thermal and dye flow conditions where linewidth instabilities, for double-longitudinal-mode oscillation, can be neutralized.
