Abstract

We present a χ(3) fiber parametric oscillator with high conversion efficiency from the input pump wave to the output parametric sidebands. By introducing an intracavity filter detuned from the oscillator’s phase-matched frequency conversion efficiencies considerably higher than those possible when operating at the phase-matched frequency are demonstrated. Experimentally we are able to obtain a total internal conversion efficiency in excess of 93% from the pump to the Stokes and anti-Stokes sidebands.

Internal conversion efficiency of the three waves as function of normalized linear mismatch at the normalized power (a) ξ = 3 and (b) ξ = 4.3 . The solid line, dash line, and dotted line are the theoretical internal conversion efficiencies of anti-Stokes, Stokes, and pump waves, respectively. The circles, squares, and diamonds are the experimental internal conversion efficiencies of the anti-Stokes, Stokes, and pump waves, respectively.
