Abstract

Propagation of short, transient pulses undergoing stimulated Raman scattering over long length scales is considered. It is shown that under common experimental circumstances the evolution has two different regimes: an I regime, at short lengths, where the pump changes little and the Stokes rapidly grows, and a J regime, at long lengths, where the Stokes intensity is close to saturation and the pump intensity decreases slowly as the square root of distance. The distance at which the J regime is reached is determined numerically.
