Abstract

We report on a fully fiber-integrated widely tunable optical parametric oscillator based on a photonic crystal fiber pumped by a picosecond ytterbium-doped fiber laser. The output wavelength of the oscillator can be continuously tuned from 898 to 1047 nm and from 1086 to 1277 nm, which is as wide as 340 nm. In particular, a larger Raman gain peak is simultaneously observed when the pump wavelength is far from the zero-dispersion wavelength in the normal-dispersion regime. The bandwidth of the output of the oscillator can be tuned by slightly adjusting the pump power.
