Abstract In this paper recent research progress on the use of Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) in Raman lasers and Raman wavelength converters is reviewed. The latest insights in the physical nature and behavior of CARS are addressed, and the recent performance breakthroughs in CARS-based Raman wavelength conversion are discussed. Based on the new findings regarding the behavior of CARS, a physical explanation for apparent inconsistencies in various experimental observations of Raman wavelength conversion is provided. To conclude it is shown that these recent insights also pave the way to the development of a novel CARS-based mechanism for reducing the heat dissipation in Raman lasers.
