Abstract

We describe a cw optical parametric oscillator (OPO) with multigrating periodically poled LiTaO3. Pumped by a single-frequency 532-nm laser, the OPO emits single-frequency radiation at wavelengths from 0.77 to 1.73 µm with as much as 60 mW of output power. Mode-hop-free operation for as long as 50 min, a low frequency drift <70 MHz/h, and as much as 700-MHz continuous frequency tuning of signal and idler are demonstrated.
