A new configuration of a pulsed white light dye laser system is proposed. Design and detailed calculation of the laser cavity are presented. A special coated prism is used inside the cavity to guide the tricolor light. The output beam is expected to be a colinear balanced white light. Numerical values of laser design parameters are also given as an example.
