We describe the operating characteristics of a femtosecond optical parametric oscillator employing chirped mirrors for intracavity group-velocity dispersion compensation. Pumped by 760 mW of power from a self-mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser, this device provides 100-fs near-transform-limited pulses continuously tunable from 1.18 to 1.32 mm with an average power of 100 180 mW. The limitations of the present setup and strategies for further pulse shortening are discussed.
