It is shown that the stimulated Brilllouin scattering (SBS) in an optical fiber is inhomogeneous in nature, exhibiting spectral broadening and hole burning under continuous wave (CW) monochromatic laser excitation. A single longitudinal and fundamental transverse mode CW Nd:YAG laser is used as the pump source. Three single- and one two-mode fibers of telecommunication grade with lengths from approximately 100 to approximately 650 m are analyzed.
