CW Parametric Oscillator Is Powerful Spectroscopic Tool

Breck Hitz

A joint effort by researchers at the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands and at Sandia National Laboratories' Combustion Research Center in Livermore, Calif., has resulted in a continuous-wave optical parametric oscillator (OPO) whose high power and broad tunability in the mid-infrared make it an ideal source for spectroscopic and chemical-sensing applications. Pumped by 11 W from an Nd:YAG laser, the CW optical parametric oscillator generated output from 3.7 to 4.7 µm. They tuned the oscillator's output from 3.7 to 4.7 µm, while the output power varied from 1.2 W to 120...Read full article
