Paper Abstract

The circularly distributed speckle pattern, as well as interference fringe structure in profile of the beam of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) I Stokes component, pumped by multimode radiation with nearly four-fold azimuthal symmetry, have been observed. The SRS was excited near the threshold of generation by nanosecond pulses of laser radiation at wavelength 530 nm. The profile of output pump beam had a uniform intensity distribution, whereas the SRS beam profile showed kaleidoscopic change from shot to shot, while the energies of input pulses were kept stable. The interference fringes showed a number of points where the fringes originated or vanished. Such behavior, which is the vortex signature, allows to suppose that SRS waves, generated from quantum noise, carry screw dislocations.
