Single-spatial-mode Raman generation in an ethanol-filled photonic bandgap fiber is demonstrated. Due to the limited bandwidth of the fiber, the generation is limited to the first Stokes order only, allowing high generated power without any visible decrease of the conversion efficiency. The realization of these two key properties opens the way to the realization of optimized compact nonlinear wavelength converters that will accommodate a large variety of usable liquids.
