Transient stimulated Raman scattering is investigated in methane-filled hollow-core photonic crystal fiber. Using frequency-chirped ps-pulses at 1.06 microm as pump and tunable CW-radiation as Stokes seed, the vibrational excitation of the CH(4) molecules can be controlled on the sub T(2) time-scale. In this way the generated Stokes pulse can be phase-locked to the pump pulse and its spectrum manipulated.
