Generation of Lyman-α radiation in phase-matched rare-gas mixtures

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

When frequency tripling to Lyman-α in Kr, we find a Kerr-induced index mismatch per atom of γKr = −5.6 × 10−36 esu, which dominates the dispersion for power densities exceeding 4 × 1012 W/cm2. Results of phase matching Kr with Ar and Xe are presented. Dielectric breakdown provides a limitation that, when combined with a requirement of a 1-Å bandwidth at Lyman-α, indicates that powers of a few kilowatts are achievable in a Kr–Ar phase-matched medium.
