Abstract

Laser emission, consisting of three primary colors, is generated by frequency conversions of the second-harmonic emission of a picosecond ( 120 ps ) Nd:YAG laser by means of stimulated Raman scattering and subsequent four-wave Raman mixing in molecular deuterium. In the double-pass configuration, the fundamental beam ( 532 nm , 14.16 mJ , 100% ) is converted to blue ( 459 nm , 1.71 mJ , 12.1% ) , green ( 532 nm , 7.04 mJ , 49.7% ) , and red ( 632 nm , 4.90 mJ , 34.6% ) , resulting in a total conversion efficiency of 96.4%.
