  3. Due to the fact that the index of refraction of the dye cell is ~1.5, the optimal position of the end mirror is 1.5 mm closer than it would be if the index of refraction of the dye cell were 1. The 1.5 mm here corresponds to the apparent foreshortening of the cavity by the 3-mm wide (2-mm dye path plus windows) dye cell.

  6. Note added in proof: Daniel Gauthier of the University of Rochester has operated the laser with coumarin 500, pumped by the UV output of an excimer laser.
  7. Note added in proof: Frank Tomkins of the Argonne National Laboratory has obtained a single-mode scan of 25 cm−1.
