Paper Abstract

With the advent of new nonlinear materials and single frequency pump sources, there is renewed interest in Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPO's). We have used a single-mode diode-laser-pumped monolithic Nd:YAG nonplanar ring laser that is both amplified and frequency doubled, to pump a monolithic MgO:LiNbO3 pulsed singly resonant OPO. The OPO signal output was temperature tuned from 834 nm to 958 nm, producing an idler tuning from 1.47 μm to 1.2 μm. Efforts toward a cw all-solid-state doubly resonant OPO are also described.
