We review the optical properties of the mixed crystal CdxHg1-xGa2S4 , propose three potential applications to which various physical properties can be tailored, and present experimental results of femtosecond optical parametric amplification in the mid IR from 5.5 to 8μm with 1.25-μm pumping by a 1-kHz Cr:forsterite regenerative amplifier.
