Dyes for CW Single-Mode Lasers
Peak: Output maximum of tuning curve.
Effciency: Laser output at the maximum of tuning range, relative to pump laser output. Effciencies may change depending on configuration or pump power level.
Solvent: The solvent influences the peak wavelength of the dye. Required solvents are Ethylene Glycol (EG), Ethylene Glycol Phenyl Ether (EPH) and Propylene Glycol Phenyl Ether (PPH), because of their lubricant properties.
Concentration: Amount of dye, in grams, for 1 liter stock solution. Higher concentrations cause a shift of tuning curves to the red, while lower concentrations may result in a blue shift. Use approximately a third of the given concentration for amplifiers. Refer to the manual for capillary cells, high repetition rate systems, or single cell lasers.
