Abstract

We report the development of a compact, tunable synchronously pumped photonic crystal fiber (PCF)-based optical parametric oscillator (FOPO). The oscillator is pumped using a gain-switched laser diode producing 220 ps pulses around 1062 nm, amplified in a ytterbium doped amplifier to peak powers of 3.5 kW. The FOPO produces anti-Stokes pulses at wavelengths between 757 and 773 nm, with durations of 150 ps at average output powers exceeding 290 mW. The output slope efficiency of the device varies with output wavelength from 1.9 to 6.0%.
