Glass fibers for stimulated Brillouin scattering and phase conjugation

Abstract

Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) and the laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) in different multimode glass fibers with a core diameter of 200 μm are determined. Antireflective coatings for fiber end-faces with high LIDT are developed, which enhance the SBS reflectivity and reduce unwanted front-face reflections. The morphology of pump- and Stokes-radiation induced damages is investigated using atomic force microscopy.
