Recent developments in the field of nonlinear optics with photonic crystal fibers have led to the realization of supercontinuum spectra or parametric sources of correlated photons. However the nonlinearities were still limited by the use of silica. Hollow core photonic crystal fibers (HCPCF) filled with highly nonlinear liquids or gases enable the implementation of more performing nonlinear devices and open the scope of potential applications thanks to the large variety of usable liquids and gases. Moreover liquid and gas filled HCPCF present several original propagation properties such as transmission bands that can be tailored to favor or prevent a given nonlinear mechanism. In this work we will show that the on-purpose limited transmission band enables a high conversion efficiency towards a single Stokes component even at high pump intensities. Moreover such Raman converters generate single spatial mode at specific wavelengths that can be determined to fit desired applications.
