The coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) process with two different-color phase-fluctuating fields was studied experimentally and theoretically. It was found that the efficiency of this process depends strongly on the cross correlation between the phases of the driving fields. Depending on the detuning from Raman resonance, the CARS signal can be either enhanced or suppressed with respect to the case of uncorrelated fields.
