Abstract

An injection-locked multiline XeF laser was used to pump a high-pressure CH4 Raman cell with a large-f/number (narrow-angle) focusing geometry. Up to 223 mJ of first-Stokes output was obtained at a quantum efficiency of 62%. The Stokes beam produced was about 26 times the diffraction limit.
