Abstract

We report efficient cascaded Raman scattering of near-IR nanosecond pulses in large-core ( 65 μm diameter) As 2 S 3 and As 2 Se 3 optical fibers. Raman scattering dominates other spectral broadening mechanisms, such as four-wave mixing, modulation instability, and soliton dynamics, because the fibers have large normal group-velocity dispersion in the spectral range of interest. With 2 ns pump pulses at a wavelength of 1.9 μm , four Stokes peaks, all with peak powers greater than 1 kW , have been measured.
