All-solid-state synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator

McCarthy, M.J. and Hanna, D.C. (1993) All-solid-state synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator Journal of the Optical Society of America B, 10, (11), pp. 2180-2190. (doi:10.1364/JOSAB.10.002180).

Record type: Article


The design and performance of a continuously operated singly resonant synchronously pumped potassium titanyl phosphate optical parametric oscillator is described. With an all-solid-state pump source providing 2-ps pulses at 523 nm, we found that the oscillation threshold pump intensity was ~60 MW cm^-2, in good agreement with design calculations. The output of the optical parametric oscillator provided transform-limited pulses of 1-2 ps duration at a 125-MHz repetition rate, continuously tunable over the range of 938-1184 nm, with tens of milliwatts of average power.
