Abstract

We introduce an Ag Ga Ge S 4 crystal for sum-frequency generation in cross-correlation frequency-resolved optical gating (XFROG) to characterize mid-IR femtosecond laser pulses between the wavelengths of 3 μ m and 11 μ m . The performance of the Ag Ga Ge S 4 crystal was examined by comparing it with a Li Nb O 3 crystal, which has been frequently used in the near- to mid-IR region. We can obtain XFROG images by the Ag Ga Ge S 4 crystal with efficiency 30 times greater than Li Nb O 3 at the wavelength of 5 μ m .
