Paper Abstract

We present a new Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) based on collinear, quasi phase-matched interaction in a periodically poled crystal (PP-crystal) with an integrated extra-cavity prism compressor delivering Signal pulses with durations as low as 30 fs around 1150 nm center wavelength. The design matching between the Ti:Sapphire pump laser (Coherent Micra-10 or MiraV10), the PP-crystal and the intra-cavity dispersion compensation of the OPO enables stable Signal emission covering a spectral region from 1050 nm to 1250 nm with pulse energies exceeding 4.5nJ. Tunability of the Signal pulses between 1130 nm and 1200 nm is given at reduced bandwidth.
