Wavelength dependence of high-efficiency second-harmonic generation in CdGeAs2

Abstract

The frequency-doubling performance of CdGeAs2 as a function of wavelength has been characterised using a representative selection of lines from the 9 and 10 μm bands of a single mode TEA CO2 laser. Results are shown to be in good agreement with theory in which wavelength dependent absorption, most significant for the generated signal, is taken into account.
