Abstract

We theoretically and numerically investigate indirect mid-infrared pulse shaping via parametric transfer, specifically difference-frequency generation. We define a quantitative measure for the fidelity of parametric transfer and investigate the effect of material dispersion and process nonlinearity on the parametric transfer. We show that a good fidelity transfer of a broad-bandwidth pulse can be efficiently achieved with a reasonable wavelength tunability, by careful design of the experimental configuration.
