Principle of quasi-phase matching at SRS - Generalized phase =2 p - a - s -(k a +k s -2k p )r, where k i – is the wave vector of interacting wave, that describes the direction of energy conversion “pump – Stokes – anti-Stokes”, on active layers input ( 1, 3 ) do not practically change, that in a final result provides a realization of quasi-phase matching conditions.

System of steady-state multiwave SRS equations In this system the wave mismatching and Raman gain are the functions of coordinate for nonlinear ( (3) 0) and linear ( (3) =0) layers. j – wave mismatching, g – steady-state Raman gain coefficient, j – frequencies of interacting waves, E j – complex wave amplitudes. 5 Raman gain dispersion Ba(NO 3 ) 2 H2H2

Influence of high SRS components on calculations precision 8 For best calculation accuracy it is necessary to take into account at least the generation of 4 Stokes and 4 anti-Stokes SRS components.
Multiwave QPM SRS: periodical structure 9 HydrogenBarium nitrate 1 – pump, 2 – first Stokes, 3 – first Anti-Stokes, 4 – second Stokes, 5 – second Anti-Stokes, 6 – third Stokes, 7 – third Anti-Stokes.
Layers length errors for periodical QPM structure 10 For periodical QPM structure it is necessary to choose the passive layers length with high accuracy, because even the small error in layer length causes the essential decreasing of anti-Stokes SRS generation efficiency, whereas for aperiodical QPM structure the error may reached more than 5% of layer length. Maximum allowed error is 15%Maximum allowed error is 0.2%
Conclusion Our numerical calculations have shown that for best accuracy of QPM SRS simulations it is necessary to take into account the dispersion of Raman gain coefficient and for studying of multiwave SRS influence on QPM structure realization it is necessary to take into account the generation at least of 4 Stokes and 4 anti-Stokes SRS components. We received the model of periodical QPM Raman media in which the efficiency of multiwave anti-Stokes generation reached ~40%. We determined that high precision of passive layers length of periodical QPM structure in hydrogen is required due to strongly influence of layers length error on anti-Stokes SRS generation efficiency. In barium nitrate it is possible to realize periodical structure for efficient generation of 3 Stokes and 3 Anti-Stokes SRS components. 11
