Abstract

We report on what is believed to be the first singly resonant cw optical parametric oscillator (SRO) that is directly pumped by a diode laser. The SRO consists of a 38-mm-long periodically poled LiNbO3 crystal in a four-mirror signal-resonant ring cavity. Pumped by 2.5 W of 925-nm diode-laser radiation, the SRO generates 480 mW of single-frequency idler radiation at 2.1μm . The wavelengths of the signal and the idler output are tuned in the ranges of 1.55 to 1.70μm and 2.03 to 2.29μm, respectively, by tuning the wavelength of the diode laser from 924.0 to 925.4 nm.
