Abstract

A high-repetition-rate, doubly-resonant, 700-2000-nm continuously-tunable optical-parametric-amplifier with 50% conversion efficiency was demonstrated. The pump/seed were provided by second-harmonic-generation/supercontinuum from the same modelocked fiber laser. This low-pulse-energy, high-average-power source is useful for biomedical applications.
