Abstract

A 1064nm pumped continuous-wave, mid-IR (34μm), signal-wave resonant optical parametric oscillator is frequency stabilized at the kilohertz jitter level to the transmission peak of an external high-finesse Fabry–Perot cavity. Owing to the high stability of the resonator length against acoustical perturbation, fine pump tuning of the idler wave around 3.3μm results in an unprecedented mode-hop-free continuous scan over 500GHz (17cm1).
