Abstract

Efficient visible light generation in a femtosecond PPLN optical parametric oscillator (OPO) using an uneven poling duty cycle was discussed. A ∼56% poling duty cycle in a PPLN OPO enabled efficient 2nd order quasi-phase-matching (QPM) second harmonic generation (SHG) of the signal in the red and 4th order QPM sum frequency generation (SFG) between the signal and pump in the blue. Results showed that in both cases the OPO signal duration was shorter than 65 fs.
