Abstract

The distributed feedback dye laser (DFDL) generates a train of picosecond pulses when pumped well above threshold. This DFDL emission can be quenched by injecting a laser pulse into DFDL. By proper timing of the quencher laser pulse, only the first DFDL pulse is generated while the successive pulses are suppressed. Operational characteristics and practical design considerations of such a quenched DFDL are given. With 2.5 ns long pump pulses from a N2 laser, a shortest DFDL pulse of 17 ps was obtained at 380 nm.
