Abstract
We demonstrate a pulsed optical parametric oscillator (OPO) based upon periodically poled lithium niobate, and pumped by a Ti:sap- phire laser. Agile and continuous OPO tuning is achieved by tuning the pump laser, with no need for OPO crystal translation or temperature change. The Ti:sapphire laser uses a coupled cavity grazing incidence resonator for efficient, single-axial-mode operation within the OPO spectral acceptance bandwidth. The OPO tuning range is 1200 to 2400 nm, limited only by the available cavity mirrors.
