A simple technique to achieve active cavity-length stabilisation in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator
Butterworth, S.D., Girard, S. and Hanna, D.C. (1996) A simple technique to achieve active cavity-length stabilisation in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator. Optics Communications, 123, (4-6), 577-582. (doi:10.1016/0030-4018(95)00533-1).
The dependence of oscillation wavelength on cavity length in a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator provides the basis of a scheme for stabilisation of the cavity length and wavelength. The design and performance of a simple implementation of this scheme via the use of a position-sensitive detector is reported for a lithium triborate optical parametric oscillator. The stabilisation scheme has proved effective over the entire tuning range of the oscillator (0.65 - 2.65µm), giving stability against fluctuations up to 200 Hz, with greatly improved amplitude stability, and allowing smooth wavelength tuning over a signal range of ~5nm.
