Photobleaching and recovery times of the mode-locking dye DODCI Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Recovery times for the photobleaching of the saturable absorbing dye DODCI by picosecond pulse excitation are reported. Variations in DODCI concentration and exciting pulse power density result in recovery times ranging from ≈10 ps at high concentration/high power to >250 ps at low concentration/low power. These results not only corroborate out earlier data for fast recovery times in DODCI but also explain the inability of other investigations to confirm these findings. © 1976.
