    The multi-pass dispersion of multiple-prism beam-expanded pulsed dye lasers is calculated. A multi-pass formula for linewidth of pulsed dye-laser oscillators including an arbitrary number of prisms is given. The results are applicable to cavities incorporating gratings in Littrow or non-Littrow configurations. Good agreement is found between measured and calculated laser linewidths.
