Dye LasersDye LasersThe organic dye laser has found many applications in scientific research because of its unusual flexibility. Its output wavelength can be tuned from the near-ultraviolet into the near-infrared; the use of frequency-doubling crystals can extend emission further into the ultraviolet. Dye lasers can be adjusted to operate over an extremely narrow spectral bandwidth, producing ultrapure light for studies of optical properties of materials in very narrow wavelength regions. They also can produce ultrashort pulses, with durations much shorter than a picosecond.This versatility comes at a cost in complexity. Individual dyes can emit light at a broader range of wavelengths th…
