29-fsec optical pulses at a center wavelength of 615 nm have been generated from a linear-cavity synchronously pumped dye laser without using the colliding-pulse mode-locking technique. The laser consists of two dye jets (a gain jet and a saturable absorber jet) and a sequence of four Brewster-angled prisms. Kiton Red S is used as the laser dye instead of the conventional Rhodamine 6G.
