Abstract

The nonlinear dynamics of strongly coupled optical frequency integer dividers based on optical parametric oscillators (OPO) were investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Using the plane-wave model, it was shown that nonlinear cascading leads to a self phase-locked optical divider (SPL-OPO). While the thresholds for oscillation remain unchanged as compared to uncoupled OPOs, the dynamics of these SPL-OPOs undergo a supercritical to subcritical bifurcation at pump threshold when going from zero second harmonic generation coupling to increasing ones.
