Abstract

We demonstrate a monolithic and quasi-phasematched singly resonant cw optical parametric oscillator in periodically poled lithium niobate. The threshold is 1.0 W and the OPO delivers up to 0.98 W signal power tunable between 1750 and 1950 nm (2710 and 2340 nm idler, respectively). We identify cascaded parasitic oscillation effects and analyze their behavior theoretically, showing good agreement with our experiment. The analysis of parasitic effects points the way to improved device designs that should enable stable, compact, and frequency-tunable sources.
