Abstract

Low-threshold, efficient optical parametric generation at 6100nm is demonstrated using CdSiP2 nonlinear crystal at 1 to 10 kHz repetition rates with relatively long 500 ps pump pulses at 1064 nm. Maximum single pulse energy of 8.7 μJ and average power of 79 mW are achieved for the idler. Seeding at the signal wavelength is employed using a distributed feedback laser diode, which enables approximately tenfold narrowing of the idler bandwidth down to less than 1 nm.
