Abstract

We report a tunable, pulsed multiline intracavity optical parametric oscillator (IOPO) realized in an Nd:YVO4 laser using a two-dimensionally domain engineered MgO:LiNbO3 as simultaneously an electro-optic Bragg Q switch and a multichannel optical parametric downconverter. The MgO:LiNbO3 was periodically and aperiodically poled along the crystallographic y and x axes, respectively, to simultaneously satisfy the phase-matching conditions required by the two quasi-phase-matching devices. When Q switched by 1 kHz, 300 V pulses, three signal lines at 1518, 1526, and 1534 nm were simultaneously generated, each with a peak power of 1kW from the IOPO at 8.3 W diode power at 50°C. Spectral tuning of the three-line IOPO with temperature was demonstrated.
