Abstract

A 10-kHz pulse repetition frequency dye laser, end pumped by a Nd:YLF laser, is reported. This laser was tunable from 590 to 655 nm, and up to 2.55 W of output power was obtained at the 609-nm peak tuning wavelength. By inserting an etalon into the dye laser cavity and frequency doubling using a β-barium borate crystal, we obtained up to 125 mW of 308-nm single-etalon-mode output, which shows potential for the performance of airborne measurements of tropospheric hydroxyl radical concentrations.
