While usually the generation of a Stokes component is attributed to Raman scattering, we present here experimentally and numerically a more fundamental mechanism which can be explained by the nonlinear Schrödinger equation alone. It can be employed to excite new frequency components on the red side, by using pulse splitting in the normal dispersion regime.
