Abstract

We present a high-power optical-parametric-oscillator (OPO) based frequency comb in the mid-IR wavelength region. The system employs periodically poled lithium niobate and is singly resonant for the signal. It is synchronously pumped by a 10 W femtosecond Yb:fiber laser centered at 1.07 μ m . The idler (signal) wavelength can be continuously tuned from 2.8 to 4.8 μ m ( 1.76 to 1.37 μ m ) with a simultaneous bandwidth as high as 0.3 μ m and a maximum average idler output power of 1.50 W . We also demonstrate the performance of the stabilized comb by recording the heterodyne beat with a narrow-linewidth diode laser. This OPO is an ideal source for frequency comb spectroscopy in the mid-IR.
