Paper Abstract

This paper presents a study of the optimum design parameters for an optical parametric oscillator as a frequency divider. A minimum threshold for oscillation of 9 mW, for near frequency degeneracy and a total conversion efficiency of 20%, was achieved over a wide range of pumping levels even up to as much as six times above threshold. An optical frequency divider was acquired by phase locking the signal-idler frequency to an external microwave frequency reference.
