Abstract

LiInSe2 is one of the few (in the meanwhile 6) non-oxide nonlinear crystals whose band-gap (2.86 eV) and transparency enabled in the past nanosecond optical parametric oscillation in the mid-IR without two-photon absorption for a pump wavelength of 1064 nm. However, the first such demonstration was limited to the 3.34-3.82 μm spectral range with a maximum idler energy of 92 μJ at 3.457 μm for a repetition rate of 10 Hz. Now we achieved broadly tunable operation, from 4.65 to 7.5 μm, with a single crystal, reaching maximum idler pulse energy of 282 μJ at 6.514 μm, at a repetition rate of 100 Hz (-28 mW of average power).
