The output power and the energy of Rh-6G dye laser were enhanced by the mixture of Rh-560 dye whose fluorescence spectrum was coincident with the absorption spectrum of Rh-6G. The argon filled coaxial flashlamp used for pulsed pumping and argon laser for CW pumping. The concentration of Rh-6G dye was optimized in each pumping method before Rh-560 dye was mixed in Rh-6G dye solution. In the coaxial flash lamp pumped Rh-6G laser the output energy was increased about 30% when Rh-560 was mixed at 1% of Rh-6G concentration. In the case of argon laser pumping with multiline, the output power was increased 18% at the concentration of 2.5%. In the single line laser pumping, the output power was enhanced more efficiently. The power enhancements were 72% and 88% when the pumping wavelengths were 488 nm and 514.5 nm respectively. ively.
