Abstract

Measurement of refractive indices in the spectral bands 9–11 µm and 1.32 µm from a cw CO2 laser and a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, respectively, is reported in a ZnGeP2 crystal. A new set of Sellmeier dispersion relations has been derived from the measured refractive indices data in this crystal. Second-harmonic generation (SHG) of CO2 laser radiation in this crystal is also reported. It is also seen that the previously reported phase-matching data for others experiments in SHG and optical parametric devices is explained satisfactorily with this new set of Sellmeier dispersion relation.

Measured refractive indices in ZGP crystal. The dotted curve represents the interpolation of our measured refractive indices as per our fitted Sellmeier dispersion relations. Dots (●) represent our measured value. The solid curve represents the interpolation of the Boyd et al.1 measured refractive indices.

Fig. 2

Illustration of birefringence of ZGP crystal from different Sellmeier dispersion relations. The smooth curves (1), (2), (3), and (4) are obtained from the Sellmeier dispersions of Kato,4 this paper, Zelmon et al.,29 and Madrasz et al.,28 respectively. We do not represent here the theoretical curves from Sellmeier dispersions of Bhar30 and Barnes et al.,27 which follow very closely with the value of Madrasz et al.,28 to avoid clumsiness. From this figure it can be seen that the birefringence values obtained from the dispersion of Kato4 decreases with decrease of wavelength instead of increase near and below 2 µm. This is not at all acceptable, as there is no reported isotropic point (crossing of refractive indices, as in the case of AgGaS2 and AgGaSe2) in this crystal.

Phase-matched angular tuning characteristics for SHG (type-I) in ZGP crystal throughout its transmission range from different Sellmeier dispersions. The smooth curves (1), (2), (3), and (4) are from the Sellmeier dispersions as in the Fig. 2 caption. Dots (●) represent the experimental points of this investigation, while (■) and (▲) represent the previously reported experimental values by Kato4 and Andreev et al.,3 respectively. They are expanded in Figs. 4(a) and 4(b). We do not represent here the theoretical curves from Sellmeier dispersions of Bhar30 and Barnes et al.27 to avoid clumsiness. Inset shows the measured absorption coefficients in this crystal. Dots (●) represent the measured value at some spot wavelengths from a tunable CO2 laser, whereas the smooth curve is from a spectrophotometer measurement. There is an increase of absorption near 9 µm due to the three-phonon absorption. The transmission cutoff at 12 µm is due to usual two-photon absorption.

Noncritically phase-matched (type-II) pump tuning characteristics in a ZGP crystal. The smooth curves (1), (2), (3), and (4) are from Sellmeier dispersions as in the Fig. 2 caption, whereas dots (●) represent the experimental point as reported by Vodopyanov and Schunemann.26 We do not represent here the theoretical curves from Sellmeier dispersion of Bhar30 and Barnes et al.,29 to avoid clumsiness. The main advantage of noncritically phase-matched pump-tuning devices is that the rapid output (i.e., signal/idler wavelength) tuning is available by a simple tuning of the pump wavelength without altering any situation of the crystal.
