Abstract

A synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator, based on periodically poled lithium niobate, has operated at idler wavelengths out to 7.3 µm . Directly measured idler output powers (average) are 4.2 mW at 6.1 µm, 0.5 mW at 7.0 µm, and 0.04 mW at 7.25 µm . Characterization of the idler output indicates essentially bandwidth-limited and diffraction-limited operation.
