Organic Dye Lasers: Brief History and Recent Developments
Frank J. Duarte
The organic dye laser has the distinction of being the first broadly tunable laser. It is capable of providing a wide variety of output forms that range from ultrashort to high energy pulses, and from highly stable continuous wave narrow linewidth oscillation to high average power emission. Current application areas include medicine, laser isotope separation and fundamental physics research.
