Abstract
Spontaneous optical parametric fluorescence has been observed for the first time in a guided wave structure (Ti:LiNbO3 channel waveguides). The results allow to study the phase matching (tuning) properties of optical parametric processes. Parametric amplification (together with difference frequency generation) has been investigated in detail to optimize the optical gain. Experimental and theoretical investigations of optical parametric oscillation in Ti:LiNbO3 waveguide resonators are reported. The oscillator build-up time has been studied as function of the pump power level. With pulses of 150 ns duration a threshold pump power of only 250 mW has been achieved. A tuning range 0.9 μm <X < 1.6μm could already be demonstrated.
