Abstract

The advantages of using pulsed picosecond lasers in place of continuous wave lasers for studies of Raman Amplification spectra are discussed. Preliminary results on the ν1 Raman band of liquid benzene using a mode-locked argon laser as probe and a cavity-dumped mode-locked dye laser as pump are presented. The signal to noise ratio attained in the study is sensibly close to the shot noise limit under the conditions employed for the experiment.
