Abstract

A temperature-tuned continuous-wave doubly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) consisting of a semimonolithic KTP crystal and a concave mirror has been designed and built. Under single-axial-mode-pair operation, we obtained a combined output power of the signal and idler light fields up to 365 mW at a pump power of 680 mW. The output wavelength of the OPO can be temperature tuned by as much as 9 nm. We achieved 2.8-GHz continuous frequency tuning of the OPO by tuning the pump laser frequency.
