Abstract

A setup for time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy, based on parametric three-wave mixing in a periodically poled lithium niobate crystal, is characterized. Special attention is given to adjusting the phase matching condition by angle tuning of the luminescent light relative to a strong, continuous-wave laser beam within the crystal. The detection system is capable of operating at room temperature and in a wavelength range from 1.55 to 2.20 µm. Its sensitivity is compared to a commercial photomultiplier, and its capability of nanosecond time resolution is demonstrated.
