Abstract

We demonstrate a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator that emits picosecond pulses at an 1.55µm wavelength with a repetition rate as a high as 10 GHz and as much as 100 mW of average power. It is pumped with a diode-pumped passively mode-locked 10-GHz Nd:YVO4 laser. Because of its high repetition rate and its potential for ultrabroad tunability, this kind of system is useful for telecom applications. It should be scalable to 40 GHz and higher as required for future telecom networks.
