Available to watch now, HÜBNER Photonics explores the performance of continuous-wave optical parametric oscillators
Widely tunable continuous-wave optical parametric oscillators (CW OPOs) are gaining recognition as novel sources of tunable laser light with great potential – not least due to their unprecedented wavelength coverage. Yet, the overall experimental requirements remain often challenging for the performance of turnkey OPO devices.
In this webinar we will discuss the characteristics of state-of- the-art tunable CW OPO designs and describe tuning schemes that have been tailored for applications like colour centre research and other quantum technologies, nanophotonics, holography, high-resolution spectroscopy, and experiments alike. Several recently published studies in these fields will be discussed in an illustrative fashion to showcase the performance of CW OPOs in the real-world laboratory.
