Abstract

The multimode transient and steady state characteristics of a singly resonant intracavity optical parametric oscillator (ICSRO) pumped by a semiconductor disk laser have been numerically analyzed. Nonlinear parametric interaction in the ICSRO was shown to stimulate multimode lasing with an intensity dip at the central frequency of emission. The insertion of an etalon makes the device exhibit a single-mode operation.
