Abstract

Transient stimulated rotational Raman scattering induced by a polarization-modulated femtosecond pulse whose polarization varies with time is reported. The peak intensity of the polarization-modulated pulse produced in this study is low compared to that of a pulse without polarization variation, and this leads to the low efficiency of self-phase-modulation and thus the high efficiency of stimulated Raman scattering compared to the case of a pump pulse without polarization modulation. The scattering process is unique in terms of the high peak ratio of the anti-Stokes to Stokes emissions compared to the ratio in the case of the scattering induced by linearly, circularly, and elliptically polarized pump pulses. Under optimum conditions, the ratio approaches 1, which is not realized in the general case of stimulated rotational Raman scattering.
