99 W mid-IR operation of a ZGP OPO at 25% duty cycle

Hemming, Alexander; Richards, Jim; Davidson, Alan; Carmody, Neil; Bennetts, Shayne; Simakov, Nikita; Haub, John

Description

We have demonstrated the highest reported output power from a mid-IR ZGP OPO. The laser is a cascaded hybrid system consisting of a thulium fibre laser, Ho:YAG solid state laser and a Zinc Germanium Phosphide parametric oscillator. The system produces 27 W of output power in the 3-5 μm wavelength range with an M² = 4.0 when operating in a repetitively q-switched mode, and a modulated peak output power of 99 W at a reduced duty cycle of 25%.
