Abstract
Raman lasers on barium nitrate crystal pumped with the radiation of nanosecond LiF:F2 laser and its second harmonic have been developed and optimized. As a result, using simple and cheap all-solid-state laser technique the continuously tunable radiation of the first, second, and third Stokes components of stimulated Raman scattering of LiF laser radiation with maximum conversion efficiencies of about 35, 28, and 10%, respectively, was obtained in the spectral range between 1240 and 1800 nm. Using the second harmonic radiation for pumping barium nitrate allowed us to generate the continuously tunable radiation of its first and second Stokes components in 594-682 nm range with maximum conversion efficiencies of approximately 40-45 and 10-15%, respectively.
