Abstract

We propose corrections to the coefficients in the published Sellmeier equation for stoichiometric LiTaO3 [Opt. Lett. 28, 194 (2003) ] that allow the extension of the wavelength range within the region of midinfrared absorption edge up to 6μm. The required extraordinary refractive index data for this range were obtained using single-pass optical parametric fluorescence measurements with a pump wavelength of 1064.4nm. We also observed efficient parasitic second-harmonic generation that could affect some quasi-phase-matching interactions. The corrected Sellmeier equation improves the accuracy of poling period calculations where the idler wavelength is within the region.
