Optical parametric oscillation in a random polycrystalline medium

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We demonstrate an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on random phase matching in polycrystalline ZnSe. The OPO was pumped by Cr:ZnS laser pulses (2.35 μm, 62 fs, 79 MHz), had a pump threshold of 90 mW, and produced an ultrabroadband spectrum spanning 3–7.5 μm.
