Coherent phenomena between incoherent pulses

L. R. Marshall, J. A. Piper

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A coherent interaction is observed between two incoherent, temporally separated pulses, which increases the stimulated Raman scattering conversion efficiency of the delayed pulse from 14% to 27%. This coupling occurs through long-lived coherence in the Raman medium. The influence of temporal pulse spacing on the enhancement is measured.
