Tunable middle infrared downconversion in GaSe and AgGaS2

Academic Article


  • We report on the generation of middle infrared radiation, tunable over the 3.5-8.5 μm spectral range. This was achieved by difference frequency generation (DFG) in GaSe and AgGaS2 crystals, using the new combination of two solid state lasers; the alexandrite (0.73-0.75 μm) laser and the alexandrite-pumped tunable LiF:F+* *2 (0.8-1.2 μm) color center laser. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
