A semiclassical model is presented for ultrashort‐pulse dye laser amplifiers. The model permits a discussion of important aspects of short‐pulse amplification such as pulse shape, pulse energy, and gain saturation. Coherence effects are found to be important in characterizing the evolution of amplified pulses in the subpicosecond and femtosecond regimes. The results are compared with those obtained using the corresponding rate equation model.
