Abstract

The quantum theory of forward Stokes generation by means of stimulated Raman scattering is extended to the case of a colored (finite-bandwidth) chaotic pump, which has both amplitude and phase fluctuations. In both transient and steady-state limits the mean Stokes intensity is found to be enhanced over that resulting from a coherent pump. In the limit that the chaotic-pump bandwidth becomes large, the mean Stokes intensity becomes identical with that resulting from a coherent pump of the same total power.
