Abstract

A single-mode cw optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on a bulk Bragg grating is reported. The OPO is capable of producing multiwatt output power both at the signal ( 1535 nm ) and idler ( 3468 nm ) wavelengths with a side-mode suppression ratio better than 29 dB . Coarse frequency tuning of 120 GHz ( 4 cm 1 ) and fast mode-hop-free tuning of 40 GHz ( 1.3 cm 1 ) have been achieved by scanning the grating temperature and the OPO pump laser, respectively.
