Abstract

A comparison of the spectroscopic parameters of Raman-active vibronic modes in various crystalline materials with a view to the use of these crystals for stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) is presented. It includes data on the Raman frequency shift, linewidth, integral, and peak Raman scattering cross sections. For steady-state SRS the highest Raman gain coefficient has been proved to be in barium nitrate and sodium nitrate crystals; for transient SRS it is expected to be in lithium niobate and tungstate crystals. Barium tungstate and strontium tungstate are proposed as new highly efficient Raman materials for both SRS cases.
