Abstract

A single-mode cw optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based on a bulk Bragg grating is reported. The OPO is capable of producing multiwatt output power both at the signal (1535nm) and idler (3468nm) wavelengths with a side-mode suppression ratio better than 29dB. Coarse frequency tuning of 120GHz (4cm1) and fast mode-hop-free tuning of 40GHz (1.3cm1) have been achieved by scanning the grating temperature and the OPO pump laser, respectively.
