Abstract

An injection-seeded single-resonant optical parametric oscillator (SROPO) with single frequency nanosecond pulsed 2.05 μm wavelength output is presented. Based on two potassium titanyl phosphate crystals and pumped by a 1064 nm single frequency laser pulse, injection seeding is performed successfully by using the ramp-hold-fire technique in a ring cavity with a bow-tie configuration. The SROPO provides 2.65 mJ single frequency signal pulse output with a 17.6 ns pulse duration at a 20 Hz repetition rate. A near-diffraction-limited beam is achieved with a beam quality factor M2 of about 1.2. The spectrum linewidth of the signal pulse is around 26.4 MHz, which is almost the Fourier-transform-limited value.
