Paper Abstract

Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) of nano- and picosecond light pulses in molecular gases is widely used for wavelength conversion, pulse shortening and other purposes [1]. For powerful femtosecond light pulses such non-linear phenomena as self- and crossmodulation, group velocity dispersion, etc. can strongly affect the quality of output stocks pulse. In this paper we analyse SRS of powerful femtosecond light pulses and show, that SRS could provide high-efficient conversion if the specific range of pulse and medium parameters is chosen. We also discuss the possibility of prepulse suppression and front edge sharpening that is extremely important for femtosecond-light-pulses-with-matter interaction.
