Abstract

It is shown that phase-locked pulses as short as 3 fs can be generated by coherent scattering in impulsively excited Raman media without the necessity of external phase control. The underlying mechanism, temporal characteristics, spectra, phase relations, physical limitations owing to competition processes, and precompensation of dispersion by the hollow waveguide window are studied analytically and numerically without the use of the slowly varying envelope approximation and with a global approach to dispersion. Additionally, the large frequency shifts in both the Stokes and anti-Stokes directions of as much as half the carrier frequency raise the possibility of generating widely tunable ultrashort pulses.
