Description/Abstract

Pulsed optical parametric amplification has been demonstrated in lithium niobate pumped at a wavelength of 1.064µm. A small-signal gain of 18 has been achieved at a signal wavelength of 3.59µm. The saturated output energy at this wavelength is 17.5 mJ per pulse. The gain is continuously tunable over the range 3.27 to 3.65 µm. An idler is generated that covers the wavelength range 1.50 to 1.58 µm.
