Abstract

Rovibration absorption lines both of C12O and C13O are observed simultaneously with the output of a 2μm broadband difference frequency generated in a direct-bonded quasi-phase-matched LiNbO3 waveguide, which is a 50 mm device with a single quasi-phase-matching period that is operated at a constant temperature. The wavelength conversion efficiency and the difference-frequency generation bandwidth reach 100%W and 100 nm, respectively. The idler output bandwidth in the 2μm region is obtained by group-velocity matching or phase-mismatch minimization when a 0.94μm pump laser diode and a 1.55μm tunable signal source are used.
