Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of 10 rotational sidebands using continuous-wave stimulated Raman scattering in molecular deuterium. The generation occurs inside a high-finesse cavity at molecular gas pressures of 0.1atm.

Stainless steel vacuum chamber that houses the high-finesse cavity (the drawing is to scale). The central 50 - cm -long section is surrounded by a liquid N 2 reservoir. The chamber end-pieces hold the cavity mirrors and antireflection coated chamber windows. One of the end-pieces houses the PZT that allows adjustments of the cavity length.

Typical spectrum measured by an optical spectrum analyzer at a D 2 pressure of 10   Torr (the relative vertical scale is in decibels). We observe multiple-order rotational stimulated Raman scattering on the | J = 0 | J = 2 transition.

Fig. 3

Generated sideband powers as a function of incident pump power at a D 2 pressure of 10   Torr . The error bars, which are not shown to increase clarity, are about ± 20 % at each data point. The largest contribution to the error bars is day-to-day variation due to systematic drifts in the experiment, such as in the alignment of the cavity mirrors.

Fig. 4

The measured spectrum at a D 2 pressure of 80   Torr and an incident pump of 9 W (the relative vertical scale is in decibels). The beam P is the first Stokes on the | J = 1 | J = 3 transition at a transition frequency of 8.9 THz . This beam then acts as another pump beam and produces another comb of Raman sidebands on the | J = 0 | J = 2 transition. This new comb is denoted with primed coordinates ( AS 2 through S 2 ).
