Description/Abstract

Optical parametric oscillation in beta-barium borate has been demonstrated using synchronous pumping by the frequency doubled output train from an actively mode-locked and Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. The parametric oscillator converts up to ~30% of the pump train to produce broadly tunable pulses (0.68 to 2.4µm) of ~75ps duration, with peak idler powers of up to ~1.6MW. The tuning range has been extended up to 0.53µm by frequency doubling the idler output with up to ~3% efficiency.
