Abstract
In this paper, we describe a red OPO device that is synchronously pumped by a mode-locked laser. The pump source is a diode pumped mode-locked Nd:YAG laser. The motivation for this approach is that the high peak power of the mode- locked pulses allows the use of shorter PPLN crystals that reduces the impact of refractive index perturbations. We expect that eh mode-locked implementation will not exhibit the power instabilities that limited the previous continuous-wave version, while the high repetition rate of the mode-locked format will be comparable to true cw in most applications.
