Abstract : The study of double-photon absorption, harmonic generation, and frequency-mixing in semiconductors, and the frequency tuning of injection lasers by uniaxial stress are reported. Calculations were also made of the cross sections for double-photon absorption in various substance. These results indicate that doublephoton absorption can readily set an intrinsic upper limit to the power density that can be transmitted through a medium. Mixing of the axial modes of both a ruby and a Nd(3+) glass laser observed in samples of Ge, GaAs, and Si which were subjected to an external dc bias field. The observed dependence of the intensity of the difference frequencies on the bias, excitation intensity. The effect of uniaxial stress on the emission of GaAs diodes operating both in the lasing and nonlasing modes have been studied. (Author)
