Abstract:

A method is described whereby a relatively narrowband 8cm source of radiation, which is tunable over most of the visible and near infrared spectral regions, can be generated. Tuning curves and powerwavelength curves are presented. The dependence of tunable output power on crystal length was also investigated. This latter investigation provided indirect evidence for the phenomenon of beam-trapping. The mechanism and potential of this tunable source are discussed. Author
