Abstract
Transverse stimulated Raman scattering (TSRS) gain coefficient of a KDP sample is measured by improved methods. The improvements include color separation of TSRS, noise light management and acquisition of valid TSRS temporal pulse. After extracting TSRS temporal pulse and data analysis, we obtained a TSRS gain coefficient of 0.28±0.03cm/GW for the KDP sample. Our improvements of measurement method include the following three aspects: First, the separation of TSRS irradiation (362.2nm) from Rayleigh irradiation (351.15nm) is realized by first-order diffraction of grating for TSRS and Rayleigh. Second, to improve the ratio of TSRS signal and noise light owing to spurious reflection of pump radiation, we remove noise light by using band-pass filter and absorption traps. Third, by analyzing the time delay between pump signal and noise signal, we demonstrates the valid TSRS temporal pulse can be extracted from the noise signal and used to calculate the TSRS gain coefficient of KDP.
