Resolved forward Brillouin scattering in optical fibers

View publication

Abstract

Forward light scattering by the thermally excited acoustic eigenmodes of an optical fiber produce numerous narrow lines not predicted by the bulk-interaction theory of Brillouin scattering. Optical heterodyne detection has been used to resolve the scattering spectrum which begins at about 20 MHz and extends to the detection limit. © 1985 The American Physical Society.
