Tunable narrow-band cw difference-frequency generation at 8.7 μm was demonstrated in silver gallium selenide (AgGaSe2) at room temperature. The crystal was pumped by an injection-seeded Er/Yb-codoped fiber amplifier at 1.554 μm and a fiber-coupled diode-pumped monolithic ring Nd:YAG laser at 1.319 μm. The difference-frequency output was used for high-resolution spectroscopy of sulfur dioxide (SO2).
