Paper Abstract

Optical parametric oscillator based on LiB3O5 (LBO) crystal and synchronously pumped at 532 nm by second harmonic generation of Nd:YAG mode locked laser, is described. In the xy plane, we use type I nonlinear interaction. Using the Sellmeier equations for the principal refractive indices of LBO, the phase-matching is calculated and the tuning curves within all transmission range are obtained. Temperature-tuning within 120-180 degrees C for the crystal is applied, and a precise thermostabilization of the heating is also realized.
