Abstract : The patent describes an N2 pumped tunable dye laser apparatus having an oscillator dye cell located within an optical cavity comprising a grating in a Littrow configuration and a mirror. A second pulsed laser pumps an amplified dye cell which is not surrounded by any optical cavity. The oscillator dye cell and the amplifier dye are aligned and synchronized so that the amplifier cell will reproduce the photon output of the oscillator dye cell in both frequency and transverse phase.
