Infrared frequency upconverter for high-sensitivity imaging of gas plumes.


A remote methane detection system has been developed using a single-frequency tunable optical parametric oscillator at 3.4 microm infrared wavelength. The infrared received light is converted by a frequency upconverter with a strong pump beam to near-infrared wavelength at 0.81 microm and detected by a sensitive photomultiplier. The conversion efficiency of… (More)
