Abstract

The resonator length of an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) is normally made a short as possible to minimize the signal-buildup time and maximize the output energy. We have found that, when a doubly resonant OPO is pumped by a multilongitudinal-mode beam, its output energy has a significant maximum when its optical length matches that of the pump source, even if this length is much greater than the shortest possible for the OPO. We have observed this effect in a ZnGeP>2-based OPO and reproduced it in numerical simulations.
