The use of angle-tuned phase matching can greatly reduce limitations on the pump laser bandwidth in crossed-beam Raman amplifiers. Potential advantages over collinear broadband amplifiers predicted to be attainable with this technique include improved intensity homogeneity, reduction of intensity-phase print-through, simplified beam combining, and avoidance of competing nonlinear processes. Expressions for allowed bandwidth are given.
