Abstract : A system using only one tunable dye laser has been constructed for generating efficient vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) radiation by near resonant third-order frequency mixing, in krypton. Enhancement effects on the generation efficiencies using various intermediate resonances and phase matched mixtures of rare gases have been investigated. This instrumentation and the schemes can be used to generate hydrogen lyman-alpha at 1215.6 A and helium two-photon resonance radiation at 1202.8 A.
