Investigation of the Formation and Self-Focusing of Stimulated Raman Scattering of Light in Condensed Media

Part of the Proceedings (Trudy) of the P. N. Lebedev Physics Institute book series (LPIS, volume 99)

Abstract

A detailed investigation is reported of the formation of SRS in the propagation direction of the exciting radiation and in the opposite direction. All the principal characteristics of SRS in these directions were measured. It is shown that the asymmetry of the SRS is due to singularities of the propagation of the SRS in the interior of the medium. The connection between SRS formation and self-focusing of light is investigated. It is observed for the first time that in substances having small Kerr constants self-focusing of SRS of light takes place in the absence of self-focusing of the exciting radiation. It is shown that the SES self-focusing regime changes when the excitation conditions change and depends on the power converted into SRS.
