Abstract The progress of laser depletion and Stokes growth in transient stimulated Raman scattering (TSRS) is investigated using a Rayleigh-scattering technique. High laser depletion is found to dominate the behavior of TSRS under conditions relevant to excite-and-probe vibrational dynamics experiments. The results are used to explain differences between recent vibrational dephasing experiments. Implications of the results on both energy relaxation ( T 1 ) and phase relaxation ( T 2… CONTINUE READING
