Paper Abstract

The process of the optic pump energy transformation in the system with temperature tuning phase-matching LiNbO3 crystal and LiF:F2+ or F2- wideband laser medium with homogeneous broadening of the amplification band have been investigated. Nonlinear crystal and wideband medium were placed in the common cavity. Excitation threshold of the wideband medium generation is lower than one for parametric generation, that is why generation of the system starts from wideband generation. Wideband radiation seed of the OPO signal wave and excitation threshold of the system reduced. During the generation development, when the system radiates near OPO lines, additional amplification at OPO frequencies brings the effect of condensation wideband spectrum. Wavelength turning in the region 0.8 - 1.1 micrometer was obtained by OPO in the system on the base LiNbO3 and LiF:F2+ crystal in common cavity at 0.532 micrometer pumping. Wavelength turning in the region 1.1 - 1.26 micrometer was obtained by OPO in the system on the base LiNbO3 and LiF:F2+ crystals in common cavity at two-waves pumping (0.532 and 1.064 micrometer). The generation threshold of such a system is essentially less than for OPO on the base LiNbO3 only.
