Abstract

We report a high-efficiency continuously tunable single-frequency doubly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on periodically poled KTiOPO4. Pumped by a frequency-doubled Nd:YLF laser at 526.5nm, the OPO has a low threshold of 30mW and can deliver up to 156mW single-frequency output at 0.8μm and 89mW single-frequency output at 1.5μm with 390mW of pump power. Coarse and continuous frequency tuning are also demonstrated experimentally.
