Optical parametric oscillators are coherent light sources showing properties that are not encountered with usual laser sources. This article deals with optical architectures that take advantage of the specific properties of the three-wave mixing parametric interaction. We show that optical cavities can be specifically designed to increase either the optical conversion of the parametric process or to reduce dramatically the emitted line width. To cite this article: A. Berrou et al., C. R. Physique 8 (2007).

Les oscillateurs paramétriques optiques sont des sources de lumière cohérente qui présentent des propriétés que lʼon ne rencontre pas avec les sources laser usuelles. Cet article traite dʼarchitectures optiques qui tirent avantage des propriétés spécifiques du processus de mélange paramétrique à trois ondes. Nous montrons que des cavités optiques peuvent être spécifiquement conçues pour augmenter le rendement de conversion optique ou pour réduire fortement la largeur de raie produite. Pour citer cet article : A. Berrou et al., C. R. Physique 8 (2007).
