Abstract

We present numerical results of an efficient scheme for mid-infrared generation using simultaneous quasi-phase matched optical parametric oscillators (OPO) and difference-frequency generation (DFG) processes in a singly resonant cavity with double-pass pump configuration. Considering an appropriately poled grating structure in MgO doped congruent lithium niobate, we have shown that it is possible to realize the double-pass pump singly resonant (DPSR) cavity configuration for the simultaneous OPO+DFG process, unlike the cascaded interaction scheme, leading to efficient mid-IR generation. Our numerical results are in agreement with the recently reported experimental results. We also present optimum parameters for the DPSR cavity configuration that could provide maximum conversion efficiency.
