Paper Abstract

This paper describes detailed analysis of optical and dielectric properties of ZnGeP2 crystals in middle IR and FIR spectral ranges, and also first experimental results on 1 W level 102 - 110 micrometers emission generation by means of difference frequency generation of CO2 laser line pairs. It is shown that MW level is achievable now, and AgIn0.35Ga0.65Se2 crystal can be used for efficient generation of FIR emission.
