Self-pulsating instabilities in a detuned single mode, homogeneously broadened Raman laser are shown here to provide evidence of spontaneous mode splitting in this system.

    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...

    The theory of the Raman sidescattering instability in an inhomogeneous plasma is revisited. The growth rate is found from the eigenvalue of a second-order ordinary differential equation in the Fourier domain. Under certain, rather easily satisfied constraints, the normalized growth rate depends...

    Stimulated rotational Raman scattering in H[sub 2] is investigated with a XeCl laser. It is shown that energy conversion to rotational Stokes radiation can be efficiently obtained by properly choosing the focusing geometry of pump radiation and the pressure of the Raman medium even at moderate...

    The occurrence of stimulated Raman scattering from within localized density cavities that may be present in many laser-produced plasmas is studied. Then scattering in both the backward and forward directions from a single cavity becomes absolutely unstable, with a common growth rate and zero...

    Raman scattering of a high-intensity, short-duration, frequency-chirped laser pulse propagating in an underdense plasma is examined. The growth of the direct forward scattered light is calculated for a laser pulse with a linear frequency chirp in various spatiotemporal regimes. This includes a...
