Atomic and Molecular NLO Publications

Atomic and molecular nonlinear optics is enjoying a renaissance from applications such a slow light, optically induced transparency, and lasing without inversion. We have many years experience in modeling atomic/molecular nonlinear processes. For example, we created a 130 nm coherent light source based on four wave mixing in Hg vapor. The conversion efficiency was 4% and the pulse energy was greater than 1 mJ. We also coauthored the first paper demonstrating inversionless lasing.
