The object of this work is the study of tunable light scattering from optical modes in crystals. The motivation for this effort is the generation of tunable optical and infrared emission, an improved understanding of the scattering process, and a study of material properties. Spontaneous and stimulated scattering are analyzed theoretically and the results of these calculations are compared to experimental observations. The analysis and experiments are specifically concerned with interactions with the transverse optical modes of lithium niobate LiNbO3.
