Optical parametric generation in periodically poled KTiOPO 4 via extended phase matching

We report an experimental demonstration of optical parametric generation in a periodically poled KTiOPO4 crystal based on the principle of mirrorless optical parametric oscillation. A femtosecond pump pulse spectrally centered at 792 nm from a Ti:sapphire amplifier is prechirped to minimize Kerr effects. The pump pulse is then injected into the nonlinear… CONTINUE READING
