Abstract

We report on a mid-infrared (mid-IR) source consisting of an 10W average-power, linearly polarized 1.54μm wavelength pulsed fiber source pumping an optical parametric oscillator. From this source, we obtained average power in excess of 1W in the 3.84.0μm wavelength range at a pulse repetition frequency of 100kHz. With a slightly different setup, we also achieved an average power of 0.25W at 4.5μm wavelength. To our knowledge, these values represent the highest mid-IR power obtained through wavelength conversion of an eye-safe fiber source.
