Actually, it has been shown by Westling and Raymer2 that the Stokes field will not have exactly the same linewidth and phase distribution as the pump except in the limit where the mode spacing is large compared with the Raman linewidth. In future studies we hope to be able to determine the effect of this lack of exact correlation.
