We discuss the dependence of the efficiency of amplification and generation of the Stokes component of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) on the ratio of the spectral widths of the pump and of the spontaneous Raman scattering. It is shown that with suitable choice of the pump-resonator length it is possible to obtain effective lasing with broadband excitation. A new interpretation is proposed for the available experimental results.
