Abstract

The output of a long-cavity 2 MHz all-solid-state Nd : YVO 4 picosecond oscillator with nonlinear optical mirror mode locking is used for direct pumping of an optical parametric amplifier seeded with white-light continuum generated in optical fiber by the same laser to generate tunable (5– 12 μ m ) mid-IR radiation.
