System parameters of an optical parametric generator pumped by the third harmonic of a Nd:glass laser are presented. The tuning range extends from 5700 to 22,700 cm−1; i.e., it covers a frequency range of 17,000 cm−1. Experimental data on spectral bandwidths, conversion efficiencies, and pulse shape are discussed. A pump beam with a divergence of four degrees simultaneously generates the entire visible spectrum (blue to red) separated by the angle of emission.
