Abstract

Efficient singly resonant oscillation near 1.3 μm and pump wavelength tuning are demonstrated for what is believed to be the first time in an organomineral crystal. An oscillation threshold of 6 MW cm-2 and a total conversion efficiency of 8% are achieved in a doubly noncritical configuration with respect to the crystal orientation and the signal wavelength. The performance and buildup time of the optical parametric oscillator have been considered and have been shown to benefit from injection seeding.
