Paper Abstract

Stimulated Raman scattering in hydrogen, produced by typical short-pulse lasers, exhibits strong transient features when operating at low pressures. These effects, relating to Stokes pulse shape, pump and medium depletion and conversion efficiency, were investigated theoretically and experimentally. The results enable us to explain this behaviour and to quantify the intensity levels and time scales where conversion is adversely affected.
