Abstract

We present an all-fiber high average power fiber optical parametric oscillator based on standard telecommunications dispersion-shifted fiber. The output of the oscillator is continuously tunable out to ±28THz from the pump wavelength. The average power of the oscillator’s output is in excess of 1.9W in each sideband out to ±25THz detuning. Between 5 and 14THz detuning, the average power of the Stokes output is in excess of 3.8W.
