We report on recent developments of widely tunable, continuous-wave (CW) laser sources based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) in nonlinear optical materials. The state-of-the-art of CW DFG technology will be reviewed. Applications of the DFG-based laser source to high-resolution molecular spectroscopy and trace gas detection will be presented. New development trends of DFG will be discussed. To cite this article: W. Chen et al., C. R. Physique 8 (2007).

Dans cet article nous présentons des développements récents de sources lasers, fonctionnant en régime continu et largement accordables en fréquence, basées sur la génération de différence de fréquences (DFG) lasers dans un milieu optique non linéaire. Lʼétat de lʼart de la technologie DFG sera passé en revue. Des applications de la source laser à DFG en spectroscopie moléculaire à haute résolution et à la détection de traces de gaz seront présentées. Des tendances récentes du développement de la technologie DFG seront discutées. Pour citer cet article : W. Chen et al., C. R. Physique 8 (2007).
