Abstract

We present numerical simulations of a singly-resonant, synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator with intra-cavity slow saturable absorber. These indicate that compression ratios of about five or more may be achieved for realistic absorber parameters. The behaviour of the parametric oscillator with absorber presents a novel nonlinear resonance which is due specifically to the nature of the parametric three-wave interaction and which would not appear in a laser system.
