Polarization dependence of stimulated Brillouin scattering in small-core photonic crystal fibers

  title={Polarization dependence of stimulated Brillouin scattering in small-core photonic crystal fibers},
  author={John E. McElhenny and Radha K. Pattnaik},
Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) generated from noise in small-core photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) exhibits a strong dependence on pump polarization. The polarization dependence of two small-core PCFs is investigated, yielding unexpected results. Both fibers exhibit birefringence resulting in a 90° polarization dependence for the SBS and a 3 dB difference in the SBS threshold between polarizations corresponding to minimum and maximum SBS, respectively. Surprisingly, the transmission of the… CONTINUE READING
