The first observation of the dynamical behavior of 3-to-1 self-phase-locked triply resonant optical parametric oscillator (SPL-TRO) induced by two competing nonlinearities, was reported. The pump laser was a continuous wave single-frequency master-oscillator power-amplifier AlGaAs semiconductor laser system. The pump, signal, idler, and biased confocal Fabry-Pérot transmission were synchronously recorded by a digital oscilloscope triggered by the ramp. Unambiguous signatures of self-phase-locking were observed in a 3-to-1 SPL-TRO subject to two competing nonlinearities. The observed temporal dynamics was attributed to the Hopf instabilities of the zero cavity detuning oscillation.
