Monolithic Optical Parametric Oscillators for Quantum Optics
In recent years optical parametric oscillators1 have proven their worth as sources for quantum optics studies. As the archetypical source for squeezed states, parametric amplification has been used to produce squeezing in triply and doubly resonant OPOs, and in below- and above-threshold systems.2,3,4 OPOs are also undergoing a renaissance from a more conventional standpoint when used as widely tunable, narrow-band sources of light for spectroscopy and remote sensing applications.
