New Developments in CW Dye Lasers

A dedicated effort at Coherent has resulted in improving the usefulness and performance of the singlefrequency dye laser. This work has led to development of a computer-controlled wavemeter dye laser system which expands user control and tunability of a dye laser. The second area of development has led to an increased tuning range of this laser system through intracavity frequency doubling.
