The evolution of the nth analytical solutions of commonly used Raman equations, analyzed by numerical simulation and experimentally, is reported. In the experiment, a 1 km undoped single-mode fiber was pumped with an ytterbium doped fiber laser system (FL) in continuous wave regime at 1064 nm in a free running configuration. We showed that it is possible to obtain up to the nth power thresholds and the maximum power for each Stokes wave by using compact analytical solutions as a first approximation in a simple, quick process.

Key words: Stokes waves, Raman, fiber amplifier, power threshold, optical fiber
