An all-solid-state narrow-bandwidth tunable near-infrared KTP optical parametric oscillator amplifier (OPOA) is presented. The bandwidth at 960 nm was reduced from the free running mode (> 100 GHz) to less than 150 MHz by the simultaneous injection seeding of the pump laser and the OPOA, which is close to the Fourier transform limit of the 4ns output pulses. The OPOA has a potential tunability of over 60 nm from 915-975 nm determined by its external cavity grating tuned diode seed laser.
