Paper Abstract

The operation of picosecond synchronously intracavity pumped optical parametric oscillator (OPO) is reported. Singly resonant OPO is based on a Brewster cut single grating periodically poled magnesium doped lithium niobate crystal(MgO:PPLN) pumped inside the resonator of a diode pumped passively mode-locked Nd:YVO4 laser. Continuously mode-locked operation was achieved, and tuning of signal wave wavelength in the range 1531 - 1554nm was observed for PPLN temperature variation from 31 to 55 ° C. Spectral width of the generated radiation was 2 nm.
