Abstract

Operation of an optical parametric oscillator based on CdSiP 2 and pumped at 1064 nm is demonstrated at a repetition rate of 1 kHz. The maximum output idler energy of 24 μ J at 6.125 μ m corresponds to an average power of 24 mW. Increasing the crystal temperature up to 150° in the noncritical (90°) configuration leads to idler wavelength tuning from 6.117 to 6.554 μ m . Subnanosecond pulse durations are obtained for the signal and idler as a result of the 1 ns pulse duration of the pump, made possible by the rather short crystal and cavity lengths ( 1   cm ) .
