In this paper a high-repetition-rate mid-infrared (mid-IR) optical parametric oscillator based on periodically poled MgO-doped LiNbO3 (PPMgLN) at room temperature was demonstrated. The maximum average mid-IR output power at 3.63μm was 1.02 W with the repetition rate of 60kHz and corresponding efficiency from the pump to the idler was 26.7%. The temperature tuning and the period tuning characteristics were also discussed.
