Ultra broadband Raman generation (2003-)

This work was done in conjunction with the Laser Consortium in the Department of Physics at Imperial College.

This description is under construction

The aim is to model the process of ultra broadband light generation in which a pair of laser pulses separated by the Raman frequency drive a Raman transition. My work on this topic initially covered experimental modelling, both of the semi-transient regime investigated primarily by Emiliano Sali, and the adiabatic regime investigated primarily by Sarah Gundry. Later, I extended my descriptions by using a single wideband field model approach, rather than the multiple narrowband fields traditionally used. This single-field model, whilst computationally intensive, allows mch greater flexibility in the kinds (and complexities) of Raman media described.
