Abstract

We suggest a novel optical parametric generator (OPG) in which one of the downconverted beams is spontaneously generated along the Poynting vector of the pump beam. In this configuration, the generation takes advantage of the walk-off of the extraordinary pump, rather than being degraded by it. As a result, the generated signal and idler beams are bright due to a high conversion efficiency, spatially nearly single mode due to the preferred direction of the Poynting vector, tunable over a wide range of wavelengths and broadband. The two beams are also correlated in frequency and in the photon number per pulse. Furthermore, due to their thermal statistics, these beams can be used as a pump to efficiently generate other nonlinear processes.

Fig. 1. Wavelength-angular intensity spectrum for low-gain (left) and high-gain (right) PDC.
Fig. 2.
Fig. 2. Experimental setup. The lens L 1 (focal length 50, 75, or 100 cm and the position changed accordingly) focuses the beam on the crystal. Another lens L 2 , with 10 cm focal length and a 2 diameter, collects all the generated radiation. The lens L 3 has a focal length of 50 cm, and an IR camera is placed in its focal plane. The inset shows the PDC output power versus the input pump power, measured with an 80 μm pump waist. The solid line shows the fit with Eq. (4).

Fig. 5. Measured horizontal beam profile (green dashed line), the vertical beam profile (blue continuous line), and the visibility for horizontal displacement of the slits without bandpass filter (green triangles) and for vertical displacement of the slits with (red squares) and without (blue circles) bandpass filter of 12 nm for a 130 μm pump waist. The red dotted line represents the Gaussian fit of the square data points. The inset shows the G ( 1 ) function for the horizontal direction calculated using the Schell model.
