Abstract

Carrier-envelope phase-stable mid-infrared pulses spanning from 5 μm to 11 μm with a pulse energy of 5 μJ were produced by difference frequency generation of two-color near-infrared pulses that were produced in a novel inline optical parametric amplifier. The mid-infrared electric waveform was characterized by electro-optic sampling using 6.5-fs pulses at 620 nm.
