Paper Abstract

The temporal compression with amplification and generation of powerful femtosecond pulses using stimulated Raman scattering in gases is studied by numerical simulation. Optimal values of medium parameters (Raman gain coefficient, group velocities dispersion) for highest conversion efficiency are determined. The dependence of Stokes wave amplification on input pulse duration and intensity is analyzed. The results can be used for development of effective nonlinear conversion devices of ultrashort laser pulses.
