Stimulated Brillouin Scattering in Optical Fibers for Optical Communication Systems
Abstract— This paper investigates stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) behaviour and phenomenon by
using the theory derived from the two-coupled equation which is frequently used to explain the mutual
interaction of the pump wave, the acoustic wave and the Stokes wave. Results show that once the Brillouin
threshold is reached, a backward-propagating Stokes wave carries most of the input power. In addition, for a
25 km single-mode fiber (SMF), it is found that 35% of the pump power is transferred to the Stokes wave
and the power transfer occurs within the first 2.5 km of the 25 km SMF.
Index Terms— Optical communication systems, multiwavelength Fiber lasers, optics nonlinearities, stimulated Brillouin scattering.
