Abstract

We report on a narrowband, nonresonant periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) optical parametric oscillator using a volume Bragg grating (VBG) as the spectral narrowing element. Pumping by a Nd:YVO4 laser at 1.06 μm, a maximum output power of 4.75 W is achieved at a repetition rate of 20 kHz for a conversion efficiency of 47.5%. Both signal and idler spectra are narrowed to less than 2 nm, at good beam quality and stability.
