Abstract

Resonant nonlinear four-wave mixing processes have been studied in sodium vapor. The generation of cw uv radiation and the upconversion of λ=10.8 μm light is reported. The coefficientC=P4/P1P2P3 obtained was on the order of ∼10−2 W−2, the pump spectral width being 12GHz. Resonant atomic nonlinearities are shown to be used for effective cw frequency conversion.
