Abstract

We report a high-energy optical parametric oscillator (OPO) synchronously pumped by a 7.19 MHz, Yb:fiber amplified, picosecond, gain-switched laser diode. The 42m long ring cavity maintains a compact design through the use of an intracavity optical fiber. The periodically poled MgO-doped LiNbO3 OPO provides output pulse energies as high as 0.49 µJ at 1.5 µm (signal) and 0.19 µJ at 3.6 µm (idler). Tunability from 1.5 to 1.7 µm and from 2.9 to 3.6 µm is demonstrated, and typical M2 values of 1.5 x 1.3 and 2.8 x 1.9 are measured for the signal and idler, respectively, at high power.
