The unit of ns and nas is determined by that of the pump photon number: for example, if the pump photon number is defined per pulse, ns and nas denote the number of Stokes and anti-Stokes photons per pump pulse.

Exactly speaking, μi was set at the same value in both cases, and μs for the cooled fiber was slightly smaller than that for the uncooled fiber. This is because, according to Eqs. (1) and (2), the difference between Raman gain coefficients for the Stokes and anti-Stokes processes increases slightly as the fiber is cooled.
