Abstract

Laser emission, consisting of three primary colors, is generated by frequency conversions of the second-harmonic emission of a picosecond (120ps) Nd:YAG laser by means of stimulated Raman scattering and subsequent four-wave Raman mixing in molecular deuterium. In the double-pass configuration, the fundamental beam (532nm,14.16mJ,100%) is converted to blue (459nm,1.71mJ,12.1%), green (532nm,7.04mJ,49.7%), and red (632nm,4.90mJ,34.6%), resulting in a total conversion efficiency of 96.4%.
