Paper Abstract

The mid-infrared (MIR) range is of great interest because fundamental molecular vibrational absorption bands exist in the MIR range. In the MIR range, typically, lasing can be generated using quantum cascade lasers, cascaded Raman lasers, and optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). Recently, fiber OPOs (FOPOs) in the MIR range have received attention because of their flexibility of the parametric gain curve designing the chromatic dispersion. Chalcogenide glass is the promising candidate for MIR FOPO because of their wide transmission window and high nonlinear coefficient. In the present paper, we design the chromatic dispersion of four-hole As2S5 chalcogenide suspended core fiber (SCF), and demonstrate a far-detuned four-wave mixing (FWM) for MIR FOPO. We design the four-hole As2S5 chalcogenide SCF for far-detuned FWM using a ∼2 μm pump source. A four-hole As2S5 chalcogenide SCF which has a core diameter of 3.25 μm is fabricated using a homemade draw tower. We experimentally observed far-detuned FWM in the four-hole As2S5 chalcogenide SCF. A detuning frequency of over 80 THz is measured in 21 cm long fiber using a 2.7 ps pulse laser at 1.96 μm. The experimental observation was confirmed by numerical demonstration.
