Abstract

An optical parametric generator based on periodically poled LiNbO3 and pumped by a 2.051-μm-wavelength laser has been demonstrated. Pump pulses of 50-ns duration of 50-Hz repetition frequency were converted into signal and idler pulses in the 3.4–5.2-μm wavelength range in a double-pass pump configuration by a 5-cm-long quasi-phase-matched crystal. An average pump power of 180 mW generated 30-mW average signal power at 3.64-μm wavelength, corresponding to 16.7% signal conversion efficiency.
