A travelling-wave pumping scheme is used to excite a distributed feedback dye laser. Output pulse shortening below the resolution limit of the streak camera system (1.9 ps) is observed when the velocity of the travelling pump wave is properly matched to the velocity of the laser emission. The pulse spectrum has been measured simultaneously. It consists of a single line of 4 Å width.
