A picosecond laser system that will generate high-power tunable IR pulses with bandwidths suitable for spectroscopic applications is discussed. The system is based on white-light continuum generation in ethylene glycol and optical parametric amplification in potassium titanyl phosphate. The nonlinear-optical processes are driven by a regeneratively(More)
We developed a high-power tunable picosecond IR laser system suitable for nonlinear spectroscopic investiga­ tions. We employ a Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier that produces 1.9-ps, 17-cm �1 , 800-nm pulses at 1 kHz as a pump source. White-light generation in ethylene glycol and optical parametric amplification in potas­ sium titanyl phosphate are used(More)
