Abstract

Mutlifrequency parametric Raman generation was carried out in a KGdWO42 crystal by use of a dual-wavelength Ti:sapphire laser system. It was found that with femtosecond pump pulses the efficiency of Raman generation is low because of the onset of self-phase modulation. The mechanism for suppression of stimulated Raman scattering by self-phase modulation is discussed. Employing 2-ps-long chirped pulses generated four Stokes and one anti-Stokes component.
