We demonstrate a low-threshold twin-beam generator using a cw triply resonant optical parametric oscillator consisting of two coupled cavities: one that resonates the signal and idler waves and the other the pump field. An intensity correlation of 5.5 dB was observed at 3 MHz for a type-II phase-matched KTP optical parametric oscillator.
