Compact and tunable, high-efficiency mid-IR laser sources are critically needed for a variety of applications including: (i) surgical cuts enabled by the strong water absorption at 2.7 μm in tissue,1 (ii) mid-IR countermeasures, and (iii) environmental and industrial gases such as NO, H2S, and water vapor.
