The second harmonic output from an injection-seeded, flashlamp-pumped, Nd:YAG pump laser (Continuum/NP Photonics: Powerlite 8000 with Scorpion seeder) is used to pump a PrecisionScan 1800 SL dye laser (Sirah) which is then used to seed an Optical Parametric Amplifier unit (Sirah: OPANIR) by difference-frequency mixing and amplification in LiNbO3 stages pumped by the Nd:YAG fundamental beam. A AgGaSe2 difference frequency mixing stage is used to extend the tuning range in the mid-IR region (Sirah MIR)

This system uses an injection-seeded, flashlamp-pumped, Nd:YAG pump laser (Continuum/NP Photonics: Powerlite 8000 with Scorpion seeder) to pump a KTP/KTA Optical Parametric Oscillator/Amplifier (LaserVision: OPO/A Custom) to generate tunable IR radiation. A AgGaSe2 difference frequency mixing stage is also available with this system to extend the tuning range.
