Abstract

An off-axis near-concentric interferometer is used for multiple passages through a small (2-mm-diameter) cylindrical volume of amplifying dye. The gain volume is pumped transversely by a copper-vapor laser, in a geometry designed for uniform pump. Pulse-to-pulse reproducibility better than 1% is obtained by operating with full saturation and using a solvent with a vanishing temperature-induced change in index of refraction (dn/dT = 0).
