Abstract

We demonstrate the selective excitation of individual Raman Stokes lines of up to the ninth order by pumping with rectangular-shaped optical pulses at 530nm from a frequency-doubled adaptively pulse shaped fiber master oscillator power amplifier. We achieve extinction ratios of up to 15dB between selected and adjacent Raman orders in a 1-km-long fiber.
