We present recent measurements of refractive indices, nonlinear susceptibilities, and isotope shifts important for sum- and difference-frequency mixing through the 71,3S two-photon resonances of Hg. These data are presented in a form that makes it possible to make quick and accurate calculations of index-matching and mixing efficiencies in the low-intensity limit.
