We show through experiments of stimulated Raman scattering how solid hydrogen (parahydrogen) can open new perspectives on nonlinear optics. Two phenomena are described: One is the self-induced phase matching in parametric anti-Stokes stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) in which the phase matching is self-organized automatically without the stringent restriction of refractive-index dispersion of the medium, and the other is the extremely slow coherence decay behavior for the Raman transition that may result in the Raman width of 80 kHz full width at half maximum (FWHM).
