We report on the generation of a background-free nearly transform-limited picosecond pulse using a simple quenching scheme in a distributed feedback dye laser. The pulsewidth and spectral linewidth were 65 ps and 10 pm, respectively. The product of these values is 0.650, which is close to the transform limit of 0.441 for a Gaussian pulse. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
