Abstract

We have achieved efficient simultaneous intracavity doubling of the signal frequency and sum-frequency generation between the signal and the pump in a periodically poled LiNbO3 femtosecond optical parametric oscillator pumped by a Ti:sapphire laser. The responsible mechanisms are second-, third-, and fourth-order quasi-phase matching (QPM). An ~56% poling duty cycle permits efficient even-order QPM. Femtosecond pulses tunable in the visible were generated with a total efficiency of more than 8% for only 480-mW pump power at 80 MHz. Optimization of the poling duty cycle can improve the efficiency further.
