Abstract

We summarize in Table 1.1 the experimental state of art of the various different methods of nonlinear infrared generation. Radiation from a black body at 1000 K is also listed as a comparison. We note that even at this early stage of development, nonlinear infrared generation has already led to tunable infrared sources with both higher peak power and higher average power than the black-body radiation.

Keywords

Parametric Oscillator Stimulate Raman Scattering Pump Source Nonlinear Polarization Raman Gain 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
