Abstract

Lithium thioindate (LiInS2) is a new nonlinear chalcogenide biaxial material transparent from 0.4 to 12 μm that has been successfully grown in large sizes and with good optical quality. We report on new physical properties that are relevant for laser and nonlinear optics applications. With respect to AgGaS(e)2 ternary chalcopyrite materials, LiInS2 displays a nearly isotropic thermal expansion behavior, a 5-times-larger thermal conductivity associated with high optical damage thresholds, and an extremely low-intensity-dependent absorption, allowing direct high-power downconversion from the near-IR to the deep mid-IR. Continuous-wave difference-frequency generation (5-11 μm) of Ti:sapphire laser sources is reported for the first time to our knowledge.
