Abstract

We demonstrate a tunable deep-ultraviolet coherent source generated by the beating of a tunable UV laser and strongly driven vibrational Raman coherence in hydrogen. The total energy conversion efficiency reaches a maximum of 50% at the phase side of the Raman coherence. The generated spectrum of Raman sidebands tunes with the input and extends from 435to146nm for an input at 282nm.
