Abstract

Dual-frequency MHz-repetition 1.5-μm optical parametric generation is demonstrated from a tandem system pumped by a picosecond Nd:YVO₄ bounce laser. An average power of 1.0 W is obtained over the range 1571-1630 nm, corresponding to an optical-optical conversion efficiency and slope efficiency of 16% and 23%, respectively. Terahertz-wave with a frequency of 3.2 THz is also generated from the system in combination with an organic nonlinear DAST crystal.
