Abstract: Guided propagation in silica optical fibers can overcome the relatively low emission power of a copper vapor laser to produce frequency conversion by stimulated Raman scattering. Multiple Stokes generation induced by laser radiation in the fused silica of optical fibers were obtained. Conversion efficiencies up to 75% and pulse shortening of the Stokes waves were recorded.
