We report on the detailed investigation of optical parametric oscillators (OPO) of bariumborate (BBO) and lithiumborate (LBO). Precise measurements of system parameters like wavelength tuning, threshold power, conversion efficiency, pulse shape, and spectral bandwidth demonstrate the excellent properties of these new tunable coherent light sources.
