Abstract

We report a continuous-wave, broadly tunable mid-infrared MgO:PPLN optical parametric oscillator pumped by a fiber amplifier. Using pump tuning with synchronized temperature optimization, we achieve the broadest mode-hop-free (MHF) tuning of idler light over 30cm1. We further use this tunable mid-infrared laser to demonstrate high-resolution absorption spectroscopy of methane across the MHF tuning range.
