We have observed the spectral and temporal characteristics of a 1.064-μm pumped, continuously tunable optical parametric oscillator using a periodically poled lithium niobate nonlinear crystal. An efficient secondary oscillation pumped by the resonant primary signal was observed. Predictions obtained from theory agree with observed results and provide insight into the dynamics of pulsed parametric oscillation.
