Abstract

The generation of ultrawide-band chirped sources in the infrared through parametric interactions in periodically poled crystals was described. The calculated phase matching curve of a periodically poled KTiOPO4 (PPKTP) crystal with a 27.1 μm period, pumped by a Ti:sapphire laser was shown. The experimental arrangement for converting the chirp of a stretched Ti:sapphire laser to a chirped beam in the mid-infrared (IR) range was shown.
