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.
