Abstract
We conduct a theoretical analysis of the Stokes component mode structure of the Raman scattering. The Raman scattering is excited in a multimode waveguide with pump radiation having statistics corresponding to the model of the narrow-band Gaussian noise. We obtain an analytical relation connecting the number of spatially coherent modes of the Stokes component, characteristics of the waveguide and conditions of the Raman scattering excitation. It follows from the obtained relation that the Raman scattering spatial coherency degree at the waveguide's exit is determined by the number of the spatial modes of pump radiation and the amplification of the Stokes radiation throughout the waveguide's length. There exists a threshold in the amplification corresponding to the unlimited increase of the number of the spatially coherent modes of the Raman scattering and therefore to a zero of spatial coherency. Conducted estimations show that at the Raman scattering threshold value of the radiation intensity the number of the spatially coherent modes of the Raman scattering Stokes component should be comparable to that of the thermal source. Experimentally, measured dispersion of the spatial intensity fluctuations of the Stokes component isolated with an interference filter (spectral bandwidth ~ 1nm, λ = 620nm) is three time smaller than that of the luminescent lamp radiation
