pulsed-dye laser:

A laser with a gain medium consisting of an organic dye, which is carbon-based. The dye is mixed with a solvent, allowing the molecules to diffuse evenly throughout the liquid. The dye medium is capable of producing a larger range of wavelengths compared to gain mediums composed of gas. Thus, dye lasers are commonly used to obtain high bandwidth in tunable/pulsed lasers.
