Abstract

Because the material time response of silica is very short (75 fs), it is neglected in most models of stimulated Raman scattering in optical fibers as soon as the characteristic pulse width involved in the interaction lies in the picosecond range. We discuss these models and the relevance of this approximation when both a pump and a Stokes wave are distinguishable. We show that the material excitation is resonantly coupled to the optical fields and thus can be responsible for chaotic dynamics, even in the picosecond regime, for strong pump power.
