    We have devised an all-optical setup for the generation of two phase-locked laser fields with a frequency difference of 3 GHz using only standard optics and two acousto-optical frequency shifters, that are operated at 253 MHz in sixtupel pass. The spectral width of the beat frequency is measured...

    The very high gains, achieved when using mode-locked pulses to synchronously pump an optical parametric oscillator based on periodically poled lithium niobate, permit oscillation even with strong idler absorption. Oscillation has been achieved at idler wavelengths out to 6.3 μm. Idler power...
