Abstract : The amplification of a cw high resolution 1 MHz single-mode dye laser in a single-stage, multipass preamplifier based on a free flowing dye jet as amplifying medium is reported. The device is pumped by a homemade CuHBr laser HyBrID laser 18 kHz repetition rate, 30 ns pulse duration at half-maximum and 80 ns at its base and yields pulses of duration of 10 ns at half-maximum. In the studied pump energy domain, the gain is a linear function of pump energy and the maximum value obtained so far with pump energy of 400 μJ is 25 μJ per pulse for an input beam power of 30 mW. The corresponding gain is of the order of 10 4. We assume that a higher gain can be reached using better quality elements. The output beam is a high quality TM 00 mode. The pulse shapes of the pump beam and the output beam are compared and a phenomenological model -switched photon lifetime- is introduced that reproduces our observations with a good agreement.
