Abstract

We report what is to our knowledge the first demonstration of a pump-enhanced singly resonant continuous-wave optical parametric oscillator. The nonlinear material used was lithium triborate cut for noncritical phase matching along the z axis, and the device was pumped by a single-frequency argon-ion laser. The oscillation threshold was ~1.0 W at 514.5 nm. For 3.4 W of pump power, we obtained single-frequency output powers of 500 mW in the nonresonant wave, which we temperature tuned over 14 nm.
