Abstract

Optical frequency division by 3 of 532 nm is demonstrated by back-to-back difference-frequency generation in a periodically poled lithium niobate crystal with a double grating. The first grating generates 1596-nm light from 532- and 798-nm inputs, and the second grating mixes the 798-nm input and the 1596-nm output from the first grating to produce a second 1596-nm output. The beat signal between the two 1596-nm outputs is detected and frequency stabilized to yield the 3:1 frequency ratio.
