Abstract

MHz-repetition-rate noncollinear optical parametric amplifiers are experimentally evaluated, focusing on the trade-offs that depend on pump-signal spatial walk-off in β -barium borate. Walk-off compensation improves beam uniformity, but parasitic second-harmonic generation limits the signal tuning range.
