Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) And Raman Pumping Lineshapes In High Fields
Additional Document Info
We have used an injection-locked Nd:YAG laser/dye laser combination together with a frequency-narrowed argon-fluoride laser to simultaneously observe coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) and stimulated. Raman pumping of oxygen. At high power densities, strong Raman pumping occurs leading to significant distortion of the CARS spectrum and a broadening of the Raman-pumped lineshapes. A simple saturation model has been used to fit these lineshapes with reasonable accuracy. 1988 SPIE.
