Abstract

We have demonstrated the generation of 400μW of power at 18μm by difference-frequency mixing the 1038 and 1105nm from a two-color, chirped pulse amplification Yb fiber system. A two-color seed is selected from a continuum source and amplified to 300mW of total power in a two-stage Yb fiber amplifier.
