Paper Abstract

A compact long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) source, based on the combination of a high-pulse-rate, 1-μm-wavelength solid-state laser with rapid and broadly tunable tandem optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) was demonstrated. Nanosecond pulses with up to 100 μJ energy, tunable within the 8-11 μm LWIR range were achieved.
