    A study of the scaling of the fraction, f[sub SRS], of the laser energy scattered by stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) is reported. A simple model of SRS as an absolute instability is presented, leading to the hypothesis that f[sub SRS] will be determined by the depth of the plasma producing...
