ABSTRACT
The group velocity of a light pulse in photonic band gap material could considerably deviate from the speed of light in vacuum. A forward stoke and a pump pulse of different speeds would enable the Raman compression in metals or the warm dense matter. A small window of the parameter regime, where the compression is feasible via the forward Raman scattering, is identified.
