Abstract [en]

The frequency modulation transfer property of a backward-wave optical parametric oscillator (BWOPO) is investigated in the context of near-IR pulse compression. The maximum transferrable bandwidth from the pump to the forward wave in a BWOPO is determined by the group dispersion mismatch. In comparison, the third-order phase introduced in a single-grating compressor setup is more detrimental to achieve optimum compression of the BWOPO forward wave. Nevertheless, we demonstrate a 220 GHz bandwidth transfer from 800 nm to 1.4 μm, with a compression factor of 115, leading to near-IR pulses as short as 1.3 ps with μJ energy.

Abstract [en]

Since the first demonstration of electric field poling in 1993, the use of quasi-phase matching (QPM) technique has gained wide adoption in a multitude of applications. The QPM field today is dominated mainly by the ferroelectric oxide materials from LiNbO3 (LN) and KTiOPO4 (KTP) families, where QPM structures are implemented by the electric field poling technique. While typical QPM devices have a fixed-period, one-dimensional domain grating design, which is the most straightforward to implement, numerous applications require the ability to continuously tune the wavelength over a wider spectral range. For applications where temperature tuning is not desired, a fan-out QPM grating design may be advantageous. The tuning here is performed by transverse translation of the structure in respect to the pump beam, while keeping the crystal temperature constant. While the implementation of fan-out gratings is reasonably well researched in LN, there is a lack of reliable data for KTP isomorphs. Taking into account the high domain growth anisotropy in KTP, an important factor becomes the angle between the domain walls and the b-axis of the crystal. This angle directly affects the quality and dimensions of the QPM device. However, its upper boundary has not been determined to date. In this work we discuss the prospects and limitations of PPKTP devices with fan-out grating designs. We present a fan-out PPRKTP device, where the transverse fan-out rate is 0.5 mu m/mm. In an OPO configuration pumped by 532 nm such PPRKTP crystal is able to provide continuously tunable radiation between 0.7 -2.2 mu m.

Abstract [en]

Mirrorless optical parametric oscillators (MOPO) represent a special class of parametric devices based on three-wave nonlinear interaction in which the generated photons counter-propagate. Owing to the phase-matching condition of the counter-propagating waves, MOPOs can sustain oscillation without mirrors and present unique and useful tuning and spectral properties. In this paper, we will review our recent advances in structuring technology to achieve quasi-phase matching periodicities as short as 500 nm in Rb-doped KTiOPO4, which are necessary to compensate for the large phase mismatch. We will also review the performance of MOPOs both in the ps- and ns- pumping regime. In the latter, our crystals reach single-pass conversion efficiencies exceeding 50%, with mJ-level output energies.
