Abstract

A highly efficient intracavity four-wave mixing in a Raman-active medium pumped by a continuous-wave laser is first demonstrated. Managing the intracavity dispersion to satisfy the phase matching in a high-finesse cavity substantially enhances the anti-Stokes emission. This process is observed in a region far beyond small signal approximation, indicating the generation of phase-locked sidebands arising from molecular modulation. This points to a novel approach of an optical modulator and mode-locked laser operating at a frequency of more than 10 THz.
