Brillouin Gain Spectrum Characterization in Single-Mode Optical Fibers

  title={Brillouin Gain Spectrum Characterization in Single-Mode Optical Fibers},
  author={Marc Nikl{\`e}s and Luc Th́evenaz and Philippe A. Robert},
A novel method for Brillouin gain spectrum measurements in optical fibers is presented. It is based on the pump and probe technique with the specificity to use a single laser source together with an external modulator to generate the interacting lightwaves. The high accuracy and inherent stability of the technique makes it suitable for calibration and reference measurements. Different fibers with different refractive index profiles have been tested and characterized. The problem of the… CONTINUE READING
