Abstract

A high-power high-efficiency narrowband dye laser pumped by a frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser has been constructed and characterized. The dye laser consists of a Hänsch-type oscillator and a simple efficient amplifier. The spectral bandwidth is 0.06 cm−1. The oscillator efficiency saturates at 16%, the amplifier efficiency at 40%, and the total system efficiency reaches 30% for a total pump energy of 6 mJ.
