Abstract

Broad-bandwidth light pulses with different frequencies, extending from the IR to the UV, are simultaneously generated when two noncollinear, ultrafast laser pulses from a visible dual-frequency laser propagate through bulk isotropic transparent media such as common glass. This phenomenon, which is believed to have been previously unreported, can be explained by a cascade of highly nondegenerate four-wave-mixing processes and corresponds to a coherent scattering effect with geometrically minimized phase mismatch. Frequency-upconverted beams were observed up to the 11th order.
