Abstract

Narrow-linewidth optical pulses at wavelengths near 630  nm with 2.2-mJ energy were generated with 61% efficiency in a periodically poled KTiOPO4 parametric oscillator pumped by a frequency-doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. The tuning range was extended to 30  nm by a noncollinear elliptical pumping geometry. We demonstrate that by angular dispersion a noncollinear optical parametric oscillator can be used to control the spectral and spatial characteristics of the output signal beam.
