Abstract

An all-solid-state picosecond optical parametric generation system that uses a single-pass noncritically phase-matched lithium triborate crystal is demonstrated. We have achieved >20% total conversion from λ = 532 nm (pump) to λ = 800 nm (signal) and 1.6 μm (idler) with a pulse width of ~15 ps and average power of 200 mW at a repetition rate of 3 kHz (~50 μJ/signal pulse). Frequency tuning from <750 nm to >1.8 μm is achieved by temperature tuning of the lithium triborate.
