Abstract

Tunable, mid-infrared radiation was obtained by frequency doubling of a continuous-wave CO2 laser in orientation-patterned GaAs crystal. Active cooling of the crystal minimized pump-induced thermal effects, allowing generation of output powers exceeding 300 mW across the wavelength range of 4.63–4.78 μm.
