Paper Abstract

We report efficient amplification of weak femtosecond signals by a stimulated Raman scattering process on vibrational and rotational components of pressurized H2 gas excited with 200-fs-duration frequency-doubled pulses from a regenerative-amplified Ti:sapphire laser. The amplification factor of 108 is obtained at the wavelength of 465 nm for weak seed pulses produced by white light continuum generation in glass.
