Abstract

We report the extension of the technique of molecular modulation to a deuterium-filled optical fiber. Using driving lasers at 807 and 1064nm, each with a pulse energy of several millijoules and a 200μm diameter fiber with a length of 22.5cm, we generate 12 sidebands with wavelengths spanning 1.56μm to 254nm.

Experimental setup. Drive lasers are combined on a dichroic beam splitter. UV-grade fused silica lenses focus the drive lasers into the laser-cleaved hollow fiber and focus the output light onto a pyroelectric detector (not shown). The gas chamber is filled with 200 Torr deuterium.

Energy of generated sidebands at the output of the gas cell with and without a hollow fiber. The input drive energies are 2.8 mJ for each drive laser. The 1064 and 807 nm drive wavelengths are labeled as 1 and 0, respectively.
