A three-dimensional study of the pump depletion and self-focusing (hot spot) effect on stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) reflectivity is presented within the paraxial-ray approximation. The reflectivity of SRS is observed to exhibit a maximum value in the case of optimum SRS gain with pump depletion. The reflectivity with pump depletion is less than without pump depletion and is the usual three-wave interaction case. The effect of plasma temperature on SRS reflectivity is also discussed.
