The purpose of this study is to investigate the design of a Raman fiber laser based on a molecule hydrogen-filled hollow-core fiber with non-touching single ring of capillaries structure. O-hydrogen vibrational frequency shift of 4155 cm-1 and rotational frequency shift of 587 cm-1 were employed to generate Raman scattering from a 1064nm pump source. A thorough exploration was made to show how all Raman fiber laser components made up: gas chamber, hollow-core fibers, windows. The whole process of chamber design, modification and fabrication were demonstrated. Besides, two kinds of anti-resonant hollow-core fibers were studied and tested. The transmission and loss spectrum of these fibers were measured thus it's easier to make a choice. Through the whole thesis a Raman fiber laser can be set up and tested very soon.
