Abstract

Blue-violet wavelength multiplexing offers the capability to enhance the operational capacity and efficiency in optical information processing, underwater communications, biology, and medicine. Here we present a specially designed atomic scheme of cesium for simultaneously generating two blue-violet lasers at 456 and 459 nm via four-wave-mixing (FWM)-based upconversion processes. We experimentally and theoretically show that a double-diamond-type coherent system pumped with 852 and 921 nm lasers is responsible for the efficient generation of the two blue-violet lasers. In this system, the large population inversions lead to self-amplified spontaneous emissions at 15.6 and $12.1\,\,\unicode{x00B5}{\rm m}$, which, in turn, serve as the seeds for enhanced double FWM processes with dual-wavelength upconversions.
