Abstract

We report a high-power, widely tunable, cw singly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on MgO:sPPLT. The OPO is pumped in the green by a cw diode-pumped Nd : Y V O 4 laser at 532 nm and can provide continuously tunable output across 848 1430 nm . Using a 30 mm crystal and double-pass pumping, an oscillation threshold of 2.88 W has been obtained, and single-pass idler powers in excess of 1.51 W have been generated over 1104 1430 nm for 6 W of pump power at an extraction efficiency of 25.2% and photon conversion efficiency of 56.7%.
