Paper Abstract

We report on ZnGeP2 and AgGaS2 crystal growth and improvement of optical transparency by annealing. Good optical quality single-crystal samples with size up to 5×5×20 mm3 were cut from our ingots, allowing to demonstrate efficient optical parametric oscillation with ZnGeP2 and to carry out first difference-frequency generation experiments with AgGaS2.
