Abstract
An OPO with lithium niobate used as nonlinear material and frequency agility accomplished by the electro-optic effect is presented in this letter. The proposed LiNbO3 electro-optic wavelength tuning OPO is based on phase-matching equations controlled by changing values of applied DC voltages. The wavelength tuning range we acquired is about 139.6nm for idler wave and 22.8nm for signal wave with the applied DC voltages changing from -4.5kV to 4.5kV.
