Abstract

We report the first experimental observation of a nonlinear laser effect, stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), in manmade diamond grown from the gaseous phase by the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technique. Multiple Stokes and anti-Stokes generation in the visible and near-IR ranges was excited under nanosecond and picosecond pumping in a 350-μ-thick plate. All the registered Raman-induced lasing wavelengths were identified. We classify the CVD-diamond as a promising χ(3)-active material for Raman laser converters in a record wide spectral range.
