This paper reports a set of Sellmeier equations for GaS and GaSe that provide excellent reproduction of the phase-matching conditions for second- to sixth-harmonic generation of CO2 laser radiation at 10.5910 μm in GaS0.4Se0.6 at 20°C. In addition, this set of Sellmeier equations is found to reproduce well the phase-matching angles for second-harmonic generation of a Ti:Al2O3 laser-pumped BaB2O4 optical parametric generator at 2.14–2.9 μm and CO2 laser radiation at 9.2(9.2007)10.7(10.6746)μm measured by Kang et al. [Appl. Phys. B 108, 545 (2012)] in GaS0.09Se0.91 and GaS0.41Se0.59.
