Abstract
Using a fully nonlinear two and one half dimensional fluid simulation code, we have performed a series of simulations of the effects of Raman scattering on the propagation of an intense laser pulse through an underdense plasma. The growth of the electrostatic plasma wave and the backscattered electromagnetic wave are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.
