Design considerations and performance are discussed for the previously reported continuous dye solution laser. Output power was 1 W untuned and up to 320 mW when tuned by a prism. Tuning range was 525–680 nm, obtained with the use of several dye solutions. Theoretical predictions. of output power as a function of input power and of dye concentration were in good agreement with measurements.
