Abstract

We explore the spectral effects due to cross-phase modulation and walk-off in picosecond fiber optical parametric oscillators. The output spectrum exhibits pump-power-dependent broadening, which can be quite asymmetric associated with a redshift or a blueshift depending on pump synchronization. By slightly increasing the cavity length, one obtains a blueshifted spectrum and a conversion efficiency as high as 15%.
