A synchronously pumped waveguide CH4 Raman laser at 1.54µm

Hanna, D.C., Mussett, S.G., Pacheco, M.T.T. and Shepherd, D.P. (1988) A synchronously pumped waveguide CH4 Raman laser at 1.54µm Optics Communications, 65, pp. 279-282.

Record type: Article


The threshold for stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) in CH4 gas with a 1.06µm pump has been reduced to only ~50kW using an arrangement involving synchronous pumping and confinement in a capillary waveguide. This corresponds to a threshold reduction of ~50 compared to an unguided, single pass device. This Raman laser has produced stable mode-locked 1.54µm pulses of ~12kW power and pulse duration ~100ps.
