The Raman effect, by which light is frequency shifted by a vibrational mode, enters into a number of phenomena in nonlinear optics. Here, we summarize our progress in identifying glass materials with potentially useful Raman properties, methods for measuring the strength of the Raman effect and its spectral dependence, and the properties of a number of different families of glasses. Glasses with both larger peak Raman susceptibilities and larger bandwidths relative to fused silica are reported.
