Paper Abstract

We present the review of femtosecond SRS generation and amplification in compressed gases. the aim of our work is to study SRS spectral and temporal structures in compressed gases with femtosecond light pulses and to optimize conditions of excitation in order to obtain pulses with the desired spectral, temporal, and energy properties. In what follows, we present the result of our studies of SRS amplification in compressed hydrogen pumped by femtosecond pluses of the second harmonic of radiation of a titanium- doped sapphire laser. Our aim was to estimate the feasibility of increasing efficiency of SRS conversion and the potentialities of using transient SRS for spectral-time selection and amplification of weak signals.
