The storing, processing and retrieving of light pulses by stimulated Raman backscattering (SRBS) in plasmas was discussed. By Raman backscattering, information carried by laser pulses can be captured and stored in the form of slowly propagating plasma waves. The information stored in the plasma wave can be retrieved in a second scattered electromagnetic wave if the plasma is further probed with a laser pulse. The recording-retrieving processes can conserve the pulse shape and enable the recording and retrieving with fidelity of information stored in optical signals.
