Abstract

The recently developed chalcopyrite Cd Si P 2 is employed in a picosecond, 90°-phase-matched, synchronously pumped, optical parametric oscillator pumped at 1064 nm to produce steady-state idler pulses near 6.4 μ m with an energy as high as 2.8 μ J at 100 MHz , in a train of 2 - μ s -long macropulses following at a repetition rate of 25 Hz . Without an intracavity etalon, the 12.6 - ps -long micropulses have a spectral width of 240 GHz .
