Abstract

Using analytical and spectroscopical techniques, the successful doping of AgGaS2 with Yb3+ during growth is demonstrated. While an active Yb:AgGaS2 crystal would not allow self-doubling, potentially it could instead be used for parametric self-downconversion. Its adequate birefringence and transparency up to 12 microns allows a wide range of non-critically phase-matched, temperature tuned downconversion processes when pumped in the near-infrared. Potential applications of pure and Yb3+-doped AgGaS2 for cw parametric oscillation and stimulated emission in the mid-IR are discussed.
