Paper Abstract

Broadband infrared spectroscopy employing optical parametric oscillation in bow-tie cavities, including a periodically- poled lithium niobate (PPLN) crystal, is well known. We demonstrate, however, that such spectroscopy is also possible using 2-mm-size monolithic whispering gallery resonators (WGRs). This is achieved in a radially-poled WGR by controlling wavelength tuning despite triple resonance of pump, signal, and idler light. Simulated and measured tuning characteristics of the Type-0 OPOs, pumped at about 1 μm wavelength, coincide. Tuning branches, which are crossed or curved at degeneracy, are present over a spectral range of up to 0.9 µm. As a proof-of-principle experiment, we show that all spectroscopic features of ethanol can be resolved using the idler light between 2.2 and 2.55 μm.
