Abstract

Using noncritically phase-matched 1-cm2 -aperture KTiOAsO4 (KTA) crystals in an optical parametric oscillator (OPO), we have demonstrated a sustained average signal power of 33 W at 1534.7 nm. To our knowledge, this is the highest-average-power signal ever generated by an OPO. The pump source was a 100-Hz Q -switched 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser. Compared with that of the similar and more-common material KTiOPO>4 , idler absorption in KTA is negligible, allowing high-power operation with minimal thermally induced refractive distortion in the OPO crystal.
