A revised formalism of SBS is given based on a new optical nonlinear wave equation which explicitly accounts for the macroscopic spatial inhomogeneity resulting from the induced acoustic wave in the medium. The new equation applies to other scattering phenomena, and more generally to optical wave propagation and interaction in nanostructured media for which characteristic spatial scale lengths of material structures (existing or optically induced) are smaller than the optical wavelength. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
