Abstract

We report a continuous-wave singly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on periodically poled lithium niobate. The simple, two-mirror OPO, pumped by a 1.064-μm Nd:YAG laser, had a 2.6–4.5-W threshold and an output of >1.2 W at 3.3 μm and was tuned over 1.45–1.62 μm (signal) and 3.98–3.11 μm (idler). The noise characteristics and the spectral properties of the device are described.

  13. In focusing the pump more tightly, we changed the focal length of the lens (see Fig. 1), moved the crystal to the new focus location, and adjusted the curvature and spacing of the OPO cavity mirrors to maintain the same mode matching between the pump and the OPO resonator.
