Paper Abstract

A demonstration of narrow linewidth, low threshold OPO is presented. Two basic line-narrowing methods are applied. One method employs an intra-cavity grazing incident grating, and compensates the high losses caused by the grating by adding a laser gain element to the cavity. In the second method, a single element birefringent filter with low insertion loss is introduced in the cavity. Both configurations allow an efficient, compact design of tunable source with low pump threshold and narrow linewidth.
