Paper Abstract

We present a comparison of the theoretical predictions of a multimode broadband model with the experimentally measured gain enhancement in a Raman amplifier. The results show that the multimode theory with fixed and totally random phases is in agreement with the data obtained from an excimer laser pumped Raman amplifier. Additionally, this theory indicates that the correlated gain can be larger than the gain for a monochromatic laser, as might be expected for a model with amplitude modulation.
