The far infrared response of an amorphous cluster compound which exhibits highly nonlinear optical properties is presented. The extreme nonlinearity enables white-light generation using excitation wavelengths in the range from 20 μm to 240 μm. The emitted light is found to cover a range from the visible to mid-infrared region. Additionally, changes of the emission characteristics for pump energies close to vibrational resonance of the cluster compound are explored. The results support prior developed model that assigns the white-light generation to the anharmonic movement of electrons in the clusters ground state potential and excludes simple photon upconversion.
