Abstract

We generated a broad spectrum of light between 1064 and 1300 nm in the infrared by cascading stimulated Raman scattering in a potassium titanyl phosphate crystal while broadband conversion of the infrared Raman cascade was simultaneously achieved in the visible through second-harmonic generation (SHG) and sum-frequency mixing. We observed that odd- and even-order cascaded Stokes components were spatially addressed at different angles of propagation in the crystal. The efficiency of SHG and sum-frequency mixing is discussed as a function of the pump polarization. We also report on significant spatial distortions of the output Stokes beams.
