Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A novel scheme to generate a subnanosecond pulse in VUV spectral region is proposed, by applying the dual-wavelength pumping method in conduction with the polarization switching technique to the stimulated rotational Raman scattering process. The optimum conditions for the short pulse generation are presented through the numerical calculations. The proposed process is applicable to a seed pulse generation for subnanosecond pulse amplification by the pump laser in the VUV region.
