Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of femtosecond mid-infrared pulses by direct difference-frequency mixing in a AgGaS2 crystal of two intense pulses from a dual-wavelength oscillator that have been simultaneously amplified in a single regenerative amplifier. A pulse energy of as much as 1.6 μJ was achieved at wavelengths of 9–11 μm.
