Abstract

We report the generation of a highly intense, tunable source from 0.67 μm to 2.58 μm by optical parametric generation and amplification in β-barium borate (BBO) pumped by picosecond pulses at 0.532 μm. The maximum conversion efficiency from the pump to the signal is 13%. The output energy is in the range a few hundred μJ.
