Abstract

In optical parametric oscillators, the line shape of the pump resonance becomes strongly distorted above the oscillation threshold. We model this behavior and find good agreement with the literature data and our original experimental data. A fit of the model to the data provides valuable information about the loss mechanisms in the parametric process. In particular, the modal properties of the parametric waves can be gained, which is important for both classical and quantum aspects of optical parametric oscillation.
