Abstract

We constructed diffusion-bonded stacks of periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). Such crystals combine the advantages of planar processing used to make PPLN wafers with the power-handling capability of large apertures. We demonstrated an optical parametric oscillator that uses a 3-mm-thick diffusion-bonded stack consisting of three 1-mm-thick PPLN crystals.
