Abstract
A high-average-power β-BaB2O4 (BBO) optical parametric oscillator pumped by the second harmonic of a Nd:YAG laser is demonstrated at the pulse repetition frequency of 0.5 kHz. Average power of 5.4 W (10.8 mJ per pulse) with an energy conversion efficiency of 45% is obtained for a type I BBO optical parametric oscillator. The output power can be increased, and undesirable thermal effects are not observed.
