Abstract

The effect of temperature variation along a high-power fiber amplifier on the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold is considered theoretically. We show that for an end-pumped rare-earth-doped double-clad fiber the inhomogeneous distribution of temperature, which is caused by the absorption of pump radiation, may result in total suppression of SBS even for output powers well above 200 W. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
