Definition : Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) that have a strong absorption band used as the active medium. During emission, the dye must be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser, flash lamp). The emission wavelength may range from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1,100 nm). These lasers are operated in continuous-wave and pulsed modes.
