Paper Abstract

By integrating a free running cavity and a narrow bandwidth cavity, it is possible to create a compound OPO design which possesses the most desirable properties of each. In this example, we have combined a 355 nm-pumped idler-resonator free running type I BBO OPO cavity with a grating-narrowed signal-re-injection arm using only standard, low-cost optics. The output from such an implementation retains the high efficiency and low divergence of the free-running OPO, but its bandwidth is dictated by that of the high resolution cavity.
