Abstract

We have demonstrated what we believe to be the first mid-infrared optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pumped directly by a pulsed Tm-doped fiber laser. The Tm-fiber pump laser produces 30 ns pulses with a repetition rate of 30 kHz at a wavelength of 2 μ m . The Zn Ge P 2 (ZGP) OPO produces 20 ns mid-IR pulses in the 3.4 3.9 μ m and 4.1 4.7 μ m spectral regions simultaneously. More than 658 mW of mid-IR output power has been generated with a total OPO slope efficiency greater than 35%.
