We demonstrate the ability to generate ultra-high-frequency sequences of broadly wavelength-tunable, high-intensity laser pulses using a custom-built optical parametric oscillator pumped by the third-harmonic output of a “burst-mode” Nd:YAG laser.
Burst sequences consisting of 6–10 pulses separated in time by
