Abstract

We observed the phase relation among subharmonic pulses generated by a femtosecond optical parametric oscillator (OPO). The ratio of the optical frequencies of the idler, the signal, and the pump pulses was set to 1:2:3. Under these conditions the wavelengths of the second harmonic of the signal pulse and the sum frequency between the pump and the idler pulses are the same. The beat signal between these two pulses represents the phase relationship among the pump, the signal, and the idler. The beat frequency varied when the cavity length of the OPO was changed.
