Abstract

We report a high-power, widely tunable, cw singly resonant optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on MgO:sPPLT. The OPO is pumped in the green by a cw diode-pumped Nd:YVO4 laser at 532nm and can provide continuously tunable output across 8481430nm. Using a 30mm crystal and double-pass pumping, an oscillation threshold of 2.88W has been obtained, and single-pass idler powers in excess of 1.51W have been generated over 11041430nm for 6W of pump power at an extraction efficiency of 25.2% and photon conversion efficiency of 56.7%.
