Ultrastable Optical Parametric Oscillators


Continuous wave optical parametric oscillators (cw-OPOs) are coherent light sources able to narrow linewidth, high output powers and broadly tune in the mid-infrared spectral region where the availability of laser radiation with these features is extremely limited.
In our laboratory, part of the scientific activities is focused on the study and the generation of ultrastable and high spectral purity mid-infrared laser radiation, working specifically on the realization of a compact and robust cw-OPO module, designed with excellent thermo-mechanical stability (Ultrastable-MIR-OPO).
The OPO emission features fulfill the requirements to be used in a variety of fields, including: spectroscopy, climate science, astronomy, defense, fundamental physics and quantum technology.
