Abstract

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.
