Abstract

We describe guided-wave singly-resonant reverse-proton-exchanged (RPE) periodically-poled lithium niobate (PPLN) waveguide ring optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) in which the feedback was provided via a single-mode fiber pigtailed to the waveguide. Wavelength selection was achieved by means of a fiber Bragg grating inside the feedback loop. The SRO threshold for the synchronously-pumped OPO was below 1mW of average coupled pump power.
