Paper Abstract

An efficient room temperature all-solid-state laser system continuously tunable in the 0.2 - 10 micrometers spectral range has been developed. It is based on the alexandrite laser pumped LiF:F2+** color center laser system. The alexandrite - LiF:F2+** color center laser combination system has been shown to be a suitable drive source for a number of efficient nonlinear processes, including harmonic, sum-frequency and difference-frequency generation.
