Abstract

We present a compact and efficient KTA-based intracavity optical parametric oscillator (IOPO) driven by a diode-end-pumped Nd : GdVO 4 / Cr : YAG passively Q-switched laser. At the incident diode pump power of 9.2 W , signal ( 1.53 μm ) and idler ( 3.47 μm ) average output powers of up to 744 and 356 mW , respectively, have been obtained. The total ( signal + idler ) optical-to-optical conversion efficiency is as high as 12%. By using the knife-edge method, near-diffraction-limited signal and idler beams have been detected, and the M 2 factors are well within 1.2. In addition, based on the ABCD matrix theory, the impact of mode matching and the thermal lens effect on the OPO output have been analyzed.
