Abstract

We report on the experimental operation of a picosecond, singly resonant, synchronously pumped optical param etric oscillator (SPOPO) based on a Zn Ge P 2 (ZGP) crystal. The ZGP SPOPO is pumped with the idler radiation from a diffraction-grating-tuned periodically poled lithium niobate SPOPO emitting a continuous picosecond pulse train ( Δ τ 8 ps , f = 76 MHz ). The noncritically 90 ° phase-matched ZGP SPOPO is tuned in the 3.8 5.6 μm range by tuning the pump wavelength ( 2.25 2.5 μm ). As high as 800 mW of average power is emitted at 4 μm .
