The mechanisms responsible for ultraviolet to mid-infrared light generation in sodium vapours two-photon excited with continuous-wave sub-100 mW power resonant laser radiation are elucidated from orbital angular momentum transfer of the applied light to the generated fields. The measured 9.5 MHz-wide spectral linewidth of the light at 819.7 nm generated by four-wave mixing, sets an upper limit to the linewidth of two fields resulting from amplified spontaneous emission at 2338 nm and 9093 nm on population inverted transitions. Understanding details of this new-field generation is central to applications such as stand-off detection and directional laser guide stars.
