Pulse compression by parametric beating with a prepared Raman coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • The propagation of the field in a far-off-resonance Raman medium was studied. In the framework of a solvable model with zero dispersion, analytical expressions for the probe field, the oscillation frequency, and the Raman spectrum were derived. Conservation relations were established. Numerical simulations revealed that the dispersion of the medium improves the pulse compression.
