Abstract

We describe a tunable broadband mid-IR laser source based on difference-frequency mixing of a 100MHz femto second Yb:fiber laser oscillator and a Raman-shifted soliton generated with the same laser. The resulting light is tunable over 3.0μm to 4.4μm, with a FWHM bandwidth of 170nm and maximum average output power up to 125mW. The noise and coherence properties of this source are also investigated and described.
