A variation of the grazing-incidence pulsed dye laser is presented. This laser has been operated in a single longitudinal cavity mode with a single-shot linewidth of less than 300 MHz and a time-averaged linewidth of 750 MHz. The single-mode conversion efficiency of the laser is 2% using Rhodamine 6G dye.
