Dynamics of cascaded Brillouin-Rayleigh scattering in a distributed fiber Raman amplifier.

Abstract

We investigate the dynamics of a novel multiwavelength generator in which cascaded-stimulated Brillouin scattering and Rayleigh scattering are automatically balanced to given an evenly spaced (9.4-GHz), highly flattened (<3-dB) optical frequency comb over a 57.2-nm span. The extended effective length for the relevant nonlinear processes from the distributed… (More)
