We report on the experimental operation of a picosecond, singly resonant, synchronously pumped optical param etric oscillator (SPOPO) based on a (ZGP) crystal. The ZGP SPOPO is pumped with the idler radiation from a diffraction-grating-tuned periodically poled lithium niobate SPOPO emitting a continuous picosecond pulse train (, ). The noncritically phase-matched ZGP SPOPO is tuned in the range by tuning the pump wavelength (). As high as of average power is emitted at .
