Paper Abstract

This paper describes results of a project to incorporate the transient stimulated rotational Raman scattering (SRRS) physics in a general purpose laser system code capable to end-to-end analysis. The SRRS model includes laser pulse shape, medium excitation and relaxation, and spontaneous scattering as a quantum initiation of the Stokes field. The laser beam may be arbitrarily specified in terms of intensity and phase profile. The diffraction evolution of the beam through the complete optical train to the point of incidence on the target may be treated including near- and far-field diffraction apertures, aberrations, and phase conversion in addition to the special SRRS model. Preliminary analysis of the OMEGA Upgrade laser system is included.
