Paper Abstract

Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) has been observed in more than 100 crystals generating about 2000 different wavelengths covering the ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral regions with a mean spacing of 1 nm. Barium nitrate crystals have been used to demonstrate high Raman shifted output energy up to 156 mJ or high average power of 10 W at 1.197 μm, 1.369 μm and 1.599 μ;m wavelengths with quantum efficiencies of up to 66 %.
