The principles of dye laser operation and the experimental techniques that are used to generate high power continuously tunable narrowband dye laser radiation, are extensively reviewed.
The basic physical processes that occur in laser dyes are covered, and rate equation models that are used to explain the operation of CW and pulsed dye lasers.
A dye laser is a laser which uses an organic dye as the lasing medium, usually as a liquid solution. Compared to gases and most solid state lasing media, a dye can usually be used for a much wider range of wavelengths, often spanning 50 to nanometers or more. The wide bandwidth makes them particularly suitable for tunable lasers and pulsed lasers.
