Saturation and tuning behaviour of stimulated electronic Raman scattering

David Cotter and David C.Hanna

Abstract

The saturation behavior of stimulated electronic Raman scattering (SERS) in atomic vapors is studied theoretically and experimentally. Limits to the SERS output energy are imposed by both pump depletion and saturation of the Raman transition. The effects of these on the performance of tunable infrared lasers based on SERS are examined.
