Fibre-laser pumped picosecond optical parametric oscillators

Fibre-laser pumped picosecond optical parametric oscillators
Fibre-laser pumped picosecond optical parametric oscillators
This talk describes the use of fibre-based master-oscillator-power-amplifier systems to pump picosecond optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). The power handling capabilities of Yb-doped optical fibres provides an opportunity to scale the output powers and pulse energies of the OPOs and the use of a gain-switched diode laser as the seed allows variation of the repetition from ~10 MHz up to ~1GHz. We describe MgO:PPLN OPOs with combined signal and idler average powers of ~10W and pulse energies approaching the µJ regime, with tunability from 1.4µm to 4.4µm. We also describe an LBO OPO pumped by the second-harmonic of the fibre-laser pump source delivering a combined signal and idler output power of ~4W with tunability from 651nm to 2851nm.

Abstract

This talk describes the use of fibre-based master-oscillator-power-amplifier systems to pump picosecond optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). The power handling capabilities of Yb-doped optical fibres provides an opportunity to scale the output powers and pulse energies of the OPOs and the use of a gain-switched diode laser as the seed allows variation of the repetition from ~10 MHz up to ~1GHz. We describe MgO:PPLN OPOs with combined signal and idler average powers of ~10W and pulse energies approaching the µJ regime, with tunability from 1.4µm to 4.4µm. We also describe an LBO OPO pumped by the second-harmonic of the fibre-laser pump source delivering a combined signal and idler output power of ~4W with tunability from 651nm to 2851nm.
