A tunable laser-based mid-infrared source for use in trace gas detection
A new widely tunable mid-infrared (IR) source based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) in Gallium Selenide (GaSe) for use in high-resolution spectroscopy and trace gas detection is described. The characteristics of ...
Compact gas sensors based on mid-infrared frequency conversion of semiconductor lasers
Design, development, and application of novel all-solid-state spectroscopic gas sensors is reported. These compact instruments employ mid-infrared difference-frequency generation pumped by room-temperature semiconductor ...
Trace gas detection of chemical species
The theory of continuous wave difference frequency generation (DFG) is studied for a mixing of two waves in a nonlinear medium, the absorption effect of the material is included and optimization conditions are studied. ...
Difference frequency generation: Spectrometers and spectroscopy
The theory of difference frequency generation has been further developed. Derived from basic principles, the equations developed here accurately predict the conversion of power to the idler wave. Critical phasematching can ...
