Abstract

Continuously tunable coherent vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) radiation has been generated in the 128.7–135.3-nm region by two-photon resonant four-wave mixing in Cd vapor. The generated VUV has no spectral structure over the tuning range and indicates that Cd vapor is an efficient nonlinear medium for frequency conversion.
