Abstract

We describe optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) operating at a 10-GHz repetition rate, synchronously pumped with a 2-W 10-GHz Nd:YVO4 laser. Unlike in a previously demonstrated 10-GHz OPO, the cavities are nonmonolithic, permitting independent tuning of the signal’s wavelength and repetition rate. We have obtained as much as 353 mW of average signal output power and a tuning range as wide as 154 nm for a signal wavelength that covers the S, C, and L bands for telecom applications. We also discuss the influence of idler feedback and various aspects of monolithic and nonmonolithic multigigahertz OPO designs.
