Abstract

We demonstrate a tunable nanosecond optical parametric oscillator with a narrowed signal spectrum. This was done by use of a volume Bragg grating based retroreflector, which makes the tuning simple and yields a compact design. Using periodically poled KTiOPO4 as the nonlinear medium, we generated 0.42mJ of signal energy at 760nm with a tuning range of 5nm (2.6THz) and a bandwidth of 0.25nm (130GHz) when the oscillator was pumped at 532nm with 1.3mJ of energy.
