Optics and Spectroscopy

The possibility of parametrical conversion of visible radiation of solid-state organic lasers into the middle-IR range of the spectrum in nonlinear GaSe1–x S x (x = 0‒0.13) crystals is investigated. Generation at the difference frequency (wavelength λ3 = 9.43 μm) of induced oxazine-1 (at λ1 = 740 nm) and rhodamine-800 (λ2 = 803.4 nm) radiation is excited. The conversion efficiency is estimated, and prospects for its further increase are demonstrated.
