Abstract

We report an experiment in which interaction between an optical wave at frequency f0 and a microwave signal at fm was used to generate a coherent optical beam at f0 + fm. The interaction was provided by lossless electro-optic modulation of the dielectric constant within a laser resonator and can thus be viewed as a demonstration of parametric(3-5) interaction at optical frequencies.
