We demonstrate a tunable nanosecond optical parametric oscillator with a narrowed signal spectrum. This was done by use of a volume Bragg grating based retrorefiector, which makes the tuning simple and yields a compact design. Using periodically poled KTiOPO4 as the nonlinear medium, we generated 0.42 mJ of signal energy at 760 nm with a tuning range of 5 nm (2.6 THz) and a bandwidth of 0.25nm (130 GHz) when the oscillator was pumped at 532 nm with 1.3 mJ of energy.
