Abstract:

This report describes the first operation of a CW directly diode-pumped optical parametric oscillator using periodically poled lithium niobate as a nonlinear medium. Degenerate oscillation of a doubly resonant device was successful. This device shows potential as a CW source in the near infrared region from 1.3 - 5 microns.
