Abstract

We report a demonstration of distributed-feedback (DFB) optical parametric oscillation (OPO) by writing photorefractive gratings in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). The photorefractive DFB structures were fabricated by illumination of PPLN with UV light through a photomask and by writing of PPLN with UV-light gated interfering laser beams at 532 nm. Evidence of OPO was observed from the spectral narrowing at the 1438.8- and the 619.3-nm signal wavelengths from 1064- and 532-nm-pumped PPLN crystals with the DFB grating periods phase matched to the 4084.5- and 3774-nm idler wavelengths, respectively.
