Paper Abstract

Our goal is to maximize conversion efficiency of sum-frequency mixing in an energy scalable system. We analyze 130.2-nm generation via two-photon-resonant four-wave mixing in Hg vapor for unfocused light beams emphasizing an understanding of efficiency-limiting processes. Our calculations, based on our measurements of Hg dipole matrix elements, indicate that mixing efficiencies of 5-10% should be possible.
