Abstract

Electric field poling has been employed to fabricate 3-mm-thick periodically poled KTiOPO4 crystal for a high-power optical parametric oscillator. The maximum output power of the singly resonant optical parametric oscillator reached 13 mJ with 45% efficiency when the resonator was pumped with a 2.2-mm-diameter beam from a Qswitched Nd:YAG laser. The influence of the cavity design on the spectral and spatial qualities of the output parametric radiation is also discussed.
