Nonlinear propagation of 100 ps, UV laser pulses in water with strong stimulated Raman stokes coupling

Abstract

Underwater UV laser pulse propagation experiments were performed at intensities spanning the linear and nonlinear regimes. Measurements and simulations show strong coupling to molecular Raman modes and suggest strong ionization-induced refraction near the beam focus.
