Abstract

A simple one-dimensional model is given for Stokes-beam amplification and expansion in a Raman generator (i.e., a stimulated Raman scattering cell with no seed inputs or feedback) for those cases in which four-wave mixing is suppressed by phase mismatching. Expansion of the first Stokes beam decreases the gain for growth of a second Stokes beam. This model accounts for the absence of second Stokes observed experimentally by Carlsten et al. [Opt. Lett. 9, 353 (1984)].
