Abstract

We present a compact efficient eye-safe intracavity optical parametric oscillator pumped by a passively Q-switched Nd:YAG laser in a shared cavity configuration. A signal pulse of 3.3  mJ energy at a 1573  nm wavelength with a peak power of 150  kW was achieved. The effective conversion efficiency with respective to the optimized 1064  nm Q-switched pulse energy was as high as 51%.
