Abstract

Stimulated Raman scattering is considered in the transient limit where the pulse width is small compared with T2. In the case where diffraction, level saturation, anti-Stokes and higher-order Stokes radiation, and quantum noise can all be neglected, we show that there are three distinct evolution regimes: the I regime, where the Stokes pulse is small compared with the pump pulse; the transition regime, where the Stokes and pump pulses are comparable; and the J regime, where the pump pulse is small compared with the Stokes pulse. The characteristic behavior in each of these three regimes is explored by using a combination of analytical and numerical tools.
