Paper Abstract

We demonstrate that synchronous pumping of singly resonant, optical parametric oscillator with sequences of a few hundred pulses yields intense, tunable pulses in a large spectral range with high spatial and temporal quality. The OPO pulses are converted to the mid-infrared by subsequent difference frequency generation with simultaneous amplification.
