Transform-limited single pulses of 2.6 ps and 1.7 ps duration are generated in the red spectral region by an excimer laser-pumped cascade of two distributed feedback dye lasers. Compared with the 15 ns-long excimer pumping pulse, these pulse durations mean pulse shortening of 6000 and 9000 times, respectively.
