Abstract

We describe a tunable broadband mid-IR laser source based on difference-frequency mixing of a 100 MHz femto second Yb:fiber laser oscillator and a Raman-shifted soliton generated with the same laser. The resulting light is tunable over 3.0 μm to 4.4 μm , with a FWHM bandwidth of 170 nm and maximum average output power up to 125 mW . The noise and coherence properties of this source are also investigated and described.
