Abstract : The development of mid-IR and near-IR waveguide lasers for spectroscopic applications was pursued in this project via a multi-pronged approach, consisting of parallel part-time efforts in several different complementary areas, namely: 1. Research and development of mid-IR fiber laser sources 2. Mid-IR sources by nonlinear mixing/OPOs based on quasi-phasematched (QPM) waveguides 3. Development of diode pumps for nonlinear conversion.
