Abstract

We discuss the enhancement of transient stimulated Raman scattering from a pulse train due to molecular memory effects for atmospheric propagation. For horizontal propagation, we show that enhancement is negligible when the interpulse spacing in the train is >0.1 ns. For propagation up through the atmosphere, the enhancement is a function of interpulse spacing, zenith angle, and pulse energy density.
