Abstract

We report use of the dye Styryl 13 for picosecond synchronous amplification in a noncollinear longitudinally pumped dye-amplifier arrangement. In this manner we obtained pulses ~5 psec in duration, tunable from 900 to 990 nm, with energy up to 300 μJ, and focusable to near the diffraction limit.
