Abstract

We present a combined experimental and theoretical study of the effect of pump pulse noise on the growth and statistics of multiorder stimulated Raman scattering in optical fiber. Because of the intensity dependence of stimulated Raman scattering, fluctuations in the detailed temporal structure of the pump pulse amplitude strongly affect the growth and statistics of the Stokes orders, even when dispersive effects are not important. By comparing experimental results with a detailed model including the frequency dependence of the Raman gain and the pump pulse temporal structure, we show that the pump pulse temporal fluctuations play a pivotal role in determining the growth and pulse energy statistics of the Stokes orders.
