Paper Abstract

The efficiency of a first Stokes Raman amplifier may be seriously reduced by the generation of a second Stokes beam. The dominating process for this generation is often a Raman four-wave mixing interaction which couples the pump and second Stokes beams. A one-dimensional model for this effect has a closed-form solution, simply described in terms of an equivalent input, under conditions where high first Stokes conversion efficiency is possible. Excellent agreement with numerical integration results has been obtained.
