Pulse compression based on coherent molecular motion induced by transient stimulated Raman scattering.

Abstract

A novel method for compressing a laser pulse, using a combination of transient stimulated Raman scattering and a pump-probe technique, is proposed. The approach does not require a short laser pulse, in contrast to a reported method based on impulsive stimulated Raman scattering. The observed spectrum was sufficiently broad to generate a sub-10 fs pulse. In fact, a 100-fs pulse in the near-ultraviolet region was compressed to the sub-30 fs. Further compression of the laser pulse would be achieved by compensating for phase distortion, as suggested from the observed data of the spectral phase.
