Abstract

We report on parametric oscillation in sodium atomic vapor by using an external cavity. Output powers of 56 mW are obtained for both the signal and idler waves with the input coupling power of 290 mW , resulting in a conversion efficiency of 39%. The signal and idler frequencies are either upshifted or downshifted from the coupling frequency by the amount of the Na hyperfine splitting frequency, and the two waves are found to be strongly temporally correlated.
