Abstract

We demonstrate a tunable vortex laser with versatile orbital angular momentum (OAM) states based on a singly resonant optical parametric oscillator formed of a noncritical phase-matching LiB3O5 crystal. The selective generation of a signal (idler) output with three OAMs, including an upconverted (negative) OAM, is achieved simply by appropriate shortening (or extending) of the cavity. The compact cavity configuration also allows for the generation of the signal (idler) output with various OAMs by simply tuning the signal wavelength. The vortex output is tuned within the wavelength region of 0.74 to 1.84 μm with a maximum pulse energy of 2.16 mJ from a pump energy of 9.3 mJ.
