Paper Abstract

We present a Raman laser based on rotational scattering in H2, synchronously pumped by a Q-switched, mode locked Nd:YAG laser. Appropriate choice of optics allows us to operate as either a first or second Stokes laser, while remaining below the threshold for extra-cavity scattering. We model the Raman scattering using a computer simulation based on higher order Stokes and anti-Stokes waves in the transient regime.
