Paper Abstract

A new scheme to generate 4.3μm laser, which was based on type phase matching ZnGeP2(ZGP) optical parametric oscillator(OPO) and pumped by 2.7μm laser, was presented in view of the extensive application of mid-infrared laser in spectroscopy, remote sensing, medicine, environmental protection and military region, especially the important application value of 2.7μm and 4.3μm laser in military. The 2.7μm laser was generated by KTP OPO, which was pumped by 1.06μm Nd:YAG laser. It was compared with other schemes such as ZGP OPO pumped by 2.7μm laser with type I phase matching and the conventional method that pumped by 2.1μm laser. The results show that the new scheme has several advantages in narrower output linewidth, smaller walkoff angle and absorption coefficient of ZGP to pump laser, wider allowance of linewidth and divergence angle of pump laser and higher conversion efficiency. It was investigated experimentally. The experimental scheme and proper parameters were presented. The effects of parameters on the threshold of ZGP OPO were analyzed. The maximal output energy of 2.7μm laser is about 4mJ, the total opticoptic conversion efficiency is about 3% and the output of 4.3μm laser was also achieved, which verified the feasibility of the new scheme.
