Optical transmission range and phase matching (PM) conditions for second harmonic generation (SHG) of Er3+:YSGG and CO2 laser in indium doped GaSe:In(0.1, 1.23, 2.32 mass%) are studied in comparison with these in pure and sulfur doped GaSe:S(0.09, 0.5, 2.2, 3 mass%) crystals. No changes in transparency curve are found in GaSe crystals up to 2.32 mass% indium content, but as small change as 0.18° in PM angle for 2.79 µm Er3+:YSGG laser SHG and ~0.06° for 9.58 µm CO2 laser emission line SHG are detected. PM properties of the crystals are evaluated as a function of temperature over the range from -165 to 230 °C. The value of dθ/dT, the change in PM angle with variation of temperature, is found to be very small for GaSe:In crystals. While for SHG of Er3+:YSGG laser, dθ/dT=22″/1°C only, it is as small as -4.9″/1°C for that of CO2 laser radiation. Linear variation of PM angle with temperature increasing is an indicator of absence of crystals structure transformation within temperature range from -165 to 230 °C. Thus, application of GaSe:In solid solutions in high average power nonlinear optical systems seems to be prospective.
