Pcosecond time resolution of stimulated Raman of alcohols, and their relationship to the generation of a picosecond continuum Academic Article uri icon


  • The simultaneous time and frequency resolved spectra of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) generated in D2O, H2O alcohols and diols by picosecond pulses are utilized to measure the vibrational relaxation of these liquids. The relationship between this SRS and the origin and spectral width of a broadband continuum is examined. It is shown that strong experimental evidence exists suggesting that in these liquids under a high power condition the SRS plays a major role in the existence and extent of the continuum. 1974.
