Modelling a singly resonant, intracavity ring optical parametric oscillator

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


We study theoretically and experimentally the dynamics of a single-frequency, unidirectional ring laser with an intracavity nonlinear singly resonant OPO-crystal in a coupled resonator. We find for a range of operating conditions good agreement between model results and measurements of the laser and OPO power output and of the temporal development of complex dynamic phenomena such as pulse shape, pulse duration, oscillatory transients and Q-switched operation of the laser.
