Abstract : The principal accomplishment reported here is the development of tunable, coherent light sources, both in the infrared and the vacuum ultraviolet. For both frequency ranges, generation was accomplished through four-wave parametric mixing, resonantly enhanced at the two-photon energy. In the case of the infrared generation, the tuning range finally achieved was 2-30 micrometers. The vacuum ultraviolet tuning range realized was 1500-2000A, although light at discrete frequencies at still shorter wavelengths (3.g., 1278A) was also generated.
