Midinfrared laser source with high power and beam quality

Abstract

A simple scheme for generation of high power in the midinfrared is demonstrated. By using a 15  W thulium-doped fiber laser emitting at 1907  nm to pump a Q-switched Ho:YAG laser, we obtained 9.8  W at 2096 nm at a 20  kHz pulse repetition rate with excellent beam quality. The output of this laser was used to pump a doubly resonant zinc germanium phosphide based optical parametric oscillator, and we obtained 5.1  W average power in the 35  μm range with M21.8.
