Self-referenced and single-ended method to measure Brillouin gain in monomode optical fibers.

Author information

Electricité de France R&D, Chatou, France.


We present a new self-referenced and single-ended method to measure the Brillouin-gain coefficient in monomode optical fibers accurately with high reliability. Our comparative measurements on several different fibers show that a fiber with a smaller optical effective mode area can nevertheless have a higher Brillouin threshold, thus confirming the significance of acousto-optic effective mode area.
