Abstract

Continuously tunable 6.8–20.1-μm mid-infrared radiation has been achieved by the use of frequency generation in CdGeAs<sub>2</sub>. The signal and the idler output of an Er-laser-pumped ZnGeP<sub>2</sub> optical parametric generator was used as the pump. The maximum external conversion efficiency reached 20%.
