Abstract

We report on a 1.57-μm wavelength singly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) using a noncritically phase-matched KTP crystal intracavity pumped by an electro-optically Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. A simple model for numerical calculation of the temporal profile of the laser and signal pulses developed inside the intracavity pumped OPO (IPOPO) resonator is described. Working conditions for single-pulse and multipulse parametric oscillation are established. A single signal pulse of 8.1-mJ output energy was obtained when the laser was pumped three times above the pulsed IPOPO threshold. A pulse duration of 5.9 ns was measured at 1.5 times above threshold for the IPOPO.
