Abstract

Continuous-wave oscillation of a singly resonant optical parametric oscillator operating from 619to640nm has been obtained. Parametric gain is created in a MgO-doped periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate crystal pumped at 532nm. 100mW of single-frequency red light have been generated. The signal frequency is tunable, and its frequency stabilization on an external reference has been achieved.

Fig. 1

Experimental setup showing the four-mirror OPO cavity as well as the sigmameter and the servo loop for OPO frequency stabilization. The sigmameter delivers two interference signals in quadrature used to monitor the OPO frequency variations. The sigmameter path difference is locked to a stabilized He–Ne laser.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

(a) Output signal intensity of the SROPO versus time with (black curve) and without (gray curve) the intracavity etalon. Inset, signal intensity after the 10 cm confocal Fabry–Perot cavity versus time (black curve, left scale) and voltage applied to the piezoelectric transducer of the Fabry–Perot cavity (gray curve, right scale). (b) Signal wavelength versus time with the intracavity etalon for the free-running OPO. No parameter is tuned. This shows that the OPO frequency is naturally stable to less than 800 MHz within a 1 h duration.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(a) Signal wavelength versus time when the etalon is alternatively rotated. Inset, enlargement of part of the curve. (b) Signal wavelength versus time with the etalon and the servo-locking system. At time t = 225 s the locking is intentionally shut off. Inset, histogram of the signal frequency with frequency stabilization, recorded over 225 s with a sampling period of 117 ms .
