Type-I DFG (λpe, λso, λio) and type-III DFG (λpe, λse, λio) angular tuning curves at 21°C of CdSiP2 with a pump at λp = 1.064 μm. λi stands for the idler wavelength plotted as a function of the phase-matching angle θ. Circles are the experimental data from Kemlin et al. [18]. (o) and (e) stand for the ordinary and extraordinary polarizations, respectively.

Fig. 3

OPO/OPG angular tuning curves at 21°C of several mid-infrared crystals pumped at the wavelength λpOpt corresponding to the broadest range of emission of the signal (λs) and idler (λi). Except for AgGaSe2, for which the infrared cut-off wavelength is above 14 µm, the tuning ranges of the different materials are determined by the idler mid-infrared absorption limit taken here at α = 2 cm−1. The dots correspond to degeneracy, which delimitates the idler range in the upper half-plane and the signal range in the lower half-plane. The indices (o) and (e) denote the ordinary and extraordinary polarizations, respectively.
