Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate in a nonlinear optical fiber system with a narrowband Raman gain that pulse walk-off between the pump and the Raman Stokes waves can be fully compensated for by Raman slow light, leading to group-velocity matching between the interacting waves, greater useful interaction length, and thereby enhanced Raman amplification efficiency. Limitations due to Kerr effect are further discussed.
