Abstract

Pulsed optical parametric oscillators for generating visible and near-IR output were investigated to determine the prospects of average-power scaling. The devices used β-barium borate and lithium triborate crystals. Experimental results show that the combination of a low-energy master oscillator and a higher-energy slave oscillator can be configured for devices of medium average power.
