Abstract

Dye-doped polymers are a low-cost alternative to crystalline solid-state laser materials. To avoid photobleaching and thermal lensing problems at high pulse repetition rates, a polymer sample may be rotated. By using a copper vapor laser as the pump source to give 70 mW output power, the high power operation of solid-state dye lasers can be achieved.
