Abstract

We report quasi-phase-matched singly resonant optical parametric oscillation in electric-field-poled lithium niobate waveguides. Parametric gains as high as 250%/W, an oscillation threshold of 1.6  W (peak), idler output powers of 220  mW, and a tuning range of 1180–2080  nm for pump wavelengths of 756–772  nm have been observed. Pump depletion is limited to 40% because of the multiple launched transverse modes at the pump wavelength. We predict that fully optimized waveguide singly resonant oscillators can have thresholds of 100 mW, accessible to cw diode pumping.
