Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS) Threshold in Optical Fibers
Applications of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) include, but are not limited to, phase conjugation, beam cleanup, and beam combination. The nonlinear optical effect of SBS can limit an aoptical fiber;s ability to transmit light and causes light propagating throughout the fiber to backscatter coherently. With this coherence, SBS serves as the basis for future research in nonlinear optical effects used to create high-powered solid-state lasers. This thesis outlines an experiment which determines SBS threshold in silica-based optical fiber.
