Abstract
We describe the wavelength tunability and conversion efficiency of 532-nm pulse pumped optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) using periodically pulsed lithium tantalate (PPLT). The OPOs reported here used PPLT crystal lengths of 1,2 and 4 cm with signal wavelengths between 660 and 950 nm. These OPO's were pumped with a pump pulse energy of 100 (mu) J at 1 kHz yielding internal slope efficiencies of almost 90 percent and pump depletions of over 70 percent. Average power scaling experiments were also performed with a pump pulse energy of 66 (mu) J at 33 kHz yielding internal slope efficiencies of 50 percent.
