Abstract

An injection-seeded optical parametric oscillator (OPO), based on periodically poled KTiOPO<sub>4</sub> and pumped by a frequency-doubled, nanosecond-pulsed Nd:YAG laser, generates continuously tunable, single-longitudinal-mode, pulsed output at ~842nm for high-resolution spectroscopy. Optical-heterodyne measurements show that the OPO frequency chirp increases linearly with detuning from the free-running (unseeded) OPO frequency and can be maintained as low as 10 MHz. Other factors affecting chirp are identified.
