Abstract

We describe a Ti:sapphire-pumped picosecond optical parametric oscillator based on periodically poled RbTiOAsO4 that is broadly tunable in the near to mid infrared. A 4.5-mm single-grating crystal at room temperature in combination with pump wavelength tuning provided access to a continuous-tuning range from 3.35 to 5 µm, and a pump power threshold of 90  mW was measured. Average mid-infrared output powers in excess of 100  mW and total output powers of 400  mW in 1ps pulses were obtained at 33% extraction efficiency.
