Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering of slow light in a hollow planar photonic band-gap waveguide Conference Paper uri icon


  • Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) by molecular nitrogen is enhanced in a hollow planar periodically corrugated waveguide. The measured dependence of CARS efficiency on the thickness of the waveguide layer indicates that CARS enhancement under these conditions is at least partially due to the decrease in the group velocity of pump pulses around the photonic band gap.
