Abstract

A high-energy, extended-cavity femtosecond BiBO optical parametric oscillator synchronously pumped by a 1.0-ps, 1030-nm Yb:YAG, thin-disk pump laser is presented. The oscillator operated near degeneracy in a noncollinear interaction geometry, producing signal wavelength tunability from 1.99 to 2.20 μm. The signal pulses have an average power exceeding 2 W, producing 455-fs pulses at 7.08 MHz with energies up to 350 nJ, showing increased potential for tunable sources of scalable ultrafast pulses in the infrared.
