Abstract

Two kinds of stationary RAMAN oscillators are investigated theoretically for molecular crystals. The calculations are done firstly for the generation of one first order anti-STOKES mode and secondly for the generation of one second order STOKES mode. By using a quantum theoretical model described in an earlier paper for treatment of molecular crystals RAMAN scattering is assumed to be polariton scattering. Within this framework coupled nonlinear equations for the polariton operators of the excited modes are derived, stationary occupation numbers for the different modes and threshold conditions are calculated. The influence of phase fluctuations of the pump wave on the line widths of the RAMAN modes are investigated.
