The transient regime of a nth-order CW Raman fiber laser is simulated from switch-on to the steady-state and from the steady-state to switch-off. The Stokes waves exhibit high-power spikes during the switch-on transition. We find that the high order Stokes fields reach steady-state faster than the low order ones and the pump.
