Abstract

We demonstrated a fully fiber-integrated widely tunable picosecond optical parametric oscillator based on highly nonlinear fiber. The ring cavity with a 50m highly nonlinear fiber was synchronously pumped with a picosecond mode-locked fiber laser. The tuning range was from 1413to1543nm and from 1573to1695nm, which was as wide as 250nm. A high-quality pulse was generated with a pulse width narrower than that of the pump.
