Abstract

The frequency spectrum of a continuous wave fiber-optic Raman laser is measured and observed to consist of several discrete lines covering a 3-nm spectral range. The output of the laser also contains damped transients which are attributed to strong pump-depletion effects in the fiber. Previously observed degradation of the fiber has been reduced in the later devices.
