Brillouin frequency shift in two kinds of jacketed optical single-mode silica fiber, with an ultraviolet curable resin coat and a nylon coat, has been measured at temperatures ranging from -30 to +60 degrees C. It has been found that there are two reasons for the Brillouin frequency shift change in jacketed optical fibers against temperature change. One is(More)
We theoretically analyze the relation between the pulse width of light launched into an optical fiber and the resultant power spectrum of spontaneous Brillouin backscattered light. Through this analysis, we determine numerically that the bandwidth of the Brillouin backscattered light becomes wider, and thus the measurement accuracy in determining the(More)
We theoretically analyze the relationship between the electric field envelope shape of an optical pulse launched into an optical fiber and the power spectrum of the spontaneous Brillouin backscattered light it produces. The electric field envelope is characterized by the pulse width, leading-trailing time, and steepness. The peak power of the launched,(More)
A new technique for measuring optical-fiber-attenuation characteristics is described. The technique uses stimulated Brillouin scattering in the fiber between a counterpropagating pulsed pump wave and a cw Stokes probe wave. Fiber attenuation is estimated nondestructively from amplification of the probe wave through stimulated Brillouin scattering.(More)
A simple spatial method using a coherent light source and an interferometer is proposed for measuring the group delay time difference between the LP(01) and LP(11) modes in a dual-mode optical fiber. Experimental results obtained by this method are in good agreement with those obtained by the swept-frequency and pulse methods. Moreover, a group delay time(More)
The effect of pump or Stokes field polarization-state changes on Brillouin gain is investigated in standard (non-polarization- maintaining) single-mode fibers with a modal birefringence of ~10(-7). The Brillouin gain change due to polarization azimuth variation of the input pump or Stokes field reaches +/-31% of the average gain expected for a completely(More)
