Abstract: 
raman lasers based on potassium gadolinium tungstate and lead tungstate crystals pumped by a≍120 ps Nd: YAG laser at 1.064 μm were developed. High reflection mirrors for the stokes wavelength have been used to generate near-infrared and eye safe spectral region of 1.15-1.32 μm. Second harmonic generation of the generated raman lasers was observed. Eifficient multiple stokes and anti-stokes picosecond generation in 64 crystals have been shown to exhibit stimulated Raman scattering on about 700 lines covering the whole visible and near-infrared spectrum. All stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) wavelengths in the visible and near-infrared spectrum are identified and attributed to the SRS-active vibration modes of these crystals.
