Stimulated Raman scattering of toluene and its mixture with chloroform is studied in liquid-core optical fiber. The results show a remarkably broadened Raman line of the mixture from about 630nm to 650nm by a pumping wavelength at 532nm, which is assigned to the interaction of CH vibrations of the two liquids. The results suggest that interactions between adjacent vibrations can produce strong and wide Raman spectra in liquid-core fiber which may prove a new simple way for supercontinuum generation.
