Abstract

An overall quantum conversion efficiency of 7.8% is achieved by intracavity mixing the signal and idler of a 1.064 μm pumped Rb: PPKTP optical parametric oscillator in BaGa4Se7. In this way, a pulse energy of ∼0.71 mJ is generated at ∼7 μm for a repetition rate of 100 Hz. Tuning of the mid-IR radiation is demonstrated by heating of the Rb: PPKTP crystal.
