Raman scattering is a three wave interaction in which a high frequency electromagnetic wave gives up energy to an electromagnetic wave at lower frequency and a Langmuir wave. This process has been suggested as a way of amplifying a short laser pulse by having it interact with a counter-propagating long pulse. I shall describe the essential theory behind this, discuss some of the e¤ects which may act to limit its e¤ectiveness and give a brief account of current progress.
