Abstract

The output of a long-cavity 2MHz all-solid-state Nd:YVO4 picosecond oscillator with nonlinear optical mirror mode locking is used for direct pumping of an optical parametric amplifier seeded with white-light continuum generated in optical fiber by the same laser to generate tunable (5–12μm) mid-IR radiation.
