We have demonstrated the generation of 400 μW of power at 18 μm by difference-frequency mixing the 1038 and 1105 nm from a two-color, chirped pulse amplification Yb fiber system. A two-color seed is selected from a continuum source and amplified to 300 mW of total power in a two-stage Yb fiber amplifier.
