Raman shifted backward second harmonic generation, shifted by upper hybrid frequency, is seen as a strong signature of the existence of a transverse static magnetic field in the laser produced plasmas. An o-mode laser exerts a second harmonic longitudinal ponderomotive force on electrons, imparting them an oscillating velocity that acts as a driver to excite a space charge upper hybrid mode and a Raman shifted second harmonic backward electromagnetic wave.

    Stimulated Raman scattering, stimulated Raman cascade, and the transition from Raman cascade into photon condensation, induced by linearly polarized intense laser interacting with an underdense uniform collisionless plasma, are studied by particle simulations. In addition to the stimulated Raman...

    Abstract. It has been shown that stimulated Raman scattering can be used to transfer the image of a transparent plane object of simple shape, on the scattered wave from the laser frequency. In a Fourier set-up, this can be achieved with dense media (liquids). Here we study the conditions needed...

    A Gaussian laser beam, propagating as an eigenmode through a low density plasma channel in the presence of an axial magnetic field, undergoes stimulated Raman back scattering, producing an upper hybrid wave and a radially localized electromagnetic sideband wave. The channel may be self created...
