Abstract

Raman conversion of femtosecond pulses in a solid-state medium is reported. Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) was observed in an impulsive SRS regime when the pump pulse’s duration was comparable with the period of Raman-active vibration. The generation of super broadband radiation, which is a distinguishing feature of impulsive SRS, is shown.
