Abstract

This paper presents our work on a pulsed single-frequency tunable optical parametric oscillator based on orientation-patterned gallium arsenide. Owing to crystal temperature tuning, this source covers the 10.2–11.2 and 7.6–8.6 μm\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{upgreek} \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{-69pt} \begin{document}$$\upmu \hbox {m}$$\end{document} ranges in single-longitudinal mode operation with a linewidth below 30 MHz.
