The study is of SRS in liquids. The production of high brightness Raman devices is possible in liquids however, the brightness gains over existing laser devices does not appear to be very large. We must exercise care in selection of the material to achieve any semblance of gain. The case for gases is much better. Many unexplained processes occur in H2 and possibly other gases as well. The brightness gains that could be produced have not yet been determined, and the main effort is now concentrated on this problem. We are also investigating the strange behavior of H2 in the usual SRS experiments.
