We describe a method for tailoring the output spectrum of a cw krypton-ion-pumped dye laser to suit a particular multimode application. The method uses both theoretical calculations and simple experimental measurements to allow component selection for the required spectra. While a specific laser system is discussed, the method is generally applicable to other systems. Results of the described modifications are given.
