Paper Abstract

Threshold measurements of stimulated rotational Raman scattering in hydrogen have been performed for the case of a linear and circularly polarized pump, with and without atmospheric-like phase distortions. Since the effects of Stokes-anti/Stokes (SAS) coupling disappear with circular polarization, the comparison of threshold measurements with each polarization provides a direct measurement of the effective gain reduction caused by SAS coupling combined with turbulence induced intensity scintillations. The results are in good agreement with Raman code calculations.
