Paper Abstract

Results of our SRS investigations of the organic crystals &agr;-Ca(HCOO)2 (alpha calcium formate), LiNH2C6H4SO3 • H2O (lithium sulfanilate monohydrate) and N(CH2CH2NH3)3Br3 (tren trihydrobromide) are presented. Currently a promising development in solid-state laser physics is the use of highly transparent ceramics. We have demonstrated efficient SRS in three ceramics based on cubic rare earth sesquioxides RE2O3 (RE = Sc, Y and Lu) with Raman shifts in the range of 378 cm-1 to 419 cm-1. Cascading &khgr;(3) → &khgr;(2) → &khgr;(3) lasing effects, self-SHG, self-SFM and cascading Stokes and anti-Stokes generation between phonons of different energies has been observed in Li2SO4 • H2O (lithium sulphate monohydrate), CsLiMoO4 (caesium lithium molybdate) and CsLiMoO4 • 1/3H2O.
