Abstract

We measured the absorption of different periodically poled lithium niobate crystals when different wavelength beams come through them. The choice of a periodically poled lithium niobate crystal is utilized by a singly resonant oscillator to efficiently generate 3800-nm light when it is pumped by a 1064-nm laser and to generate the 2600-nm signal, and, then, injection seeded at 1550 nm. The temperature-tuning curve and idler output power of the chosen crystal are measured.
