Interfering the laser pump light and returned SBS light can provide a heterodyne measurement of the frequency shift, which makes it possible to compare images, monitoring different mechanical properties.
In order to monitor the temporal profiles of the LIF and ASE from the 560 nm QD laser pumped by a 3rd harmonic (355 nm, 10 Hz) nanosecond laser, the output emission was transmitted to a UPD connected to an oscilloscope with the trigger signal being acquired from the Q switch out of the pump laser.

Extreme utility of this laser is key to the development of tunable, direct-diode laser pumped dye liquid lasers operating in the blue or blue-green wavelengths, as well as the 550 to 620 nm wavelength region.
In some cases, when the wavelength of the excitation pulse is not adapted to the requirements of a specific experiment, a laser pumped dye laser is employed.
Compared with OPA, near-infrared laser pumped OPCPA is more promising for producing high-energy midinfrared lasers without causing significant nonlinear pulse distortion or causing damage.
