Abstract

Optical parametric oscillators synchronously pumped with 1-µm femtosecond and picosecond lasers are used to generate long-wave mid-infrared radiation using the nonlinear material orientation-patterned gallium phosphide. The output spectra from the femtosecond OPO are measured, demonstrating tuning based on grating period and temperature from 5.5 to 13.0 µm. The picosecond OPO produces 137 mW at 7.87 µm, representing the first picosecond-pumped OPO using orientation gallium phosphide.
