Abstract

We demonstrate efficient generation of high-order anti-Stokes Raman sidebands in a highly transient regime, using a pair of 100-fs laser pulses tuned to Raman resonance with vibrational transitions in methane or hydrogen. The use of this technique looks promising for efficient subfemtosecond pulse generation.

HSRS spectra obtained from methane at several pressures by use of two pump pulses (lighter curves) and one pump only (darker curves): (a) p=1.6×105 Pa; (b) p=3×105 Pa (inset, Fourier transform of the lighter curve); (c) same as (b) but with the duration of the pump pulse at 800 nm stretched to 400 fs (inset, Fourier transform of the lighter curve). All curves are in the same units.
