Abstract

We report continuous-wave operation of singly resonant fiber optical parametric oscillators. In a cavity formed by 100 m of highly nonlinear fiber and two fiber Bragg gratings, the pump power threshold was 240 mW; the output wavelength could be tuned over 80 nm by tuning of the pump. We also obtained an internal conversion efficiency of 30%, compared with the maximum theoretical value of 50%, by use of a 1-km-long cavity.
