Abstract

We report a unique spectral narrowing and manipulation technique in an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) realized by an integrated periodically poled lithium niobate comprising an optical parametric gain medium sandwiched by two electro-optic polarization-mode converters (EO PMCs). We achieved a manipulation of the gain spectrum of the OPO via EO and/or temperature control of the EO PMCs, in which we obtained single to multiple signal spectral peaks from the OPO with a spectral width reduced by up to 10 times and peak intensity increased by up to 6 times in comparison with the original signal. Fast EO tuning of the narrowed signal spectral peak has also been demonstrated.
