Abstract

We report on the generation of essentially transform-limited mid-infrared pulses as short as 75 fs centered at 5 µm with 6 µJ of energy. Infrared materials with group-velocity dispersion values of opposite sign are used in combination to null second-order dispersion and compress the mid-infrared pulses.
