Abstract
The generation of tunable mid-infrared (MIR) laser radiation in the spectral range from 4 μm to 5 μm by nonlinear frequency-conversion of laser pulses in periodically poled Lithium niobate (PPLN) is investigated. Results of several experiments including nanosecond-, picosecond- and femtosecond- laser systems are presented and the potential and limitations of PPLN as nonlinear material for the MIR frequency-conversion are discussed.
