We demonstrate the ability to generate ultrahigh frequency burst sequences of deep UV at 226 nm by mixing the optical parametric oscillator signal output at 622 nm with third harmonic at 355 nm from a pulse burst laser system. We obtained 226 nm burst sequences with uniform burst envelopes, and the average pulse energy is 0.5 mJ . Nitric oxide planar laser-induced fluorescence image sequences at ultrahigh ( 100 kHz ) frame rates have been obtained.
