Abstract : The solid metal current return in a typical commercial co-axial flashlamp is replaced with a light transmissive current return which permits light from either or both surfaces of the flashlamp to be used to pump dye volumes. This enables one flashlamp to pump two dye volumes simultaneously, resulting in a significant increase in the overall efficiency of the co-axial flashlamp-pumped dye laser. Patent applications.
