Paper Abstract

The advances in new nonlinear optical materials and laser technology have made it attractive to generate 2-micrometers power using standard 1-micrometers laser drivers and optical parametric frequency down-conversion techniques. In this paper we review the status of two pulsed sources of 2-micrometers power including low power, tunable, single-frequency (200-MHz bandwidth) device, and a high-power, synchronously-pumped, efficient (62% conversion of 1- micrometers to 2-micrometers power) degenerate optical parametric oscillator.
