Pulsed dye-laser operation in a single-mode fiber is demonstrated by incorporating an evanescent field amplifier into an all-fiber ring resonator. Laser threshold is obtained with 60 mW of pump power. Characteristics of the vanescent fiber amplifier are investigated as functions of pump power and dye solution index.
