Gain-assisted pulse advancement using single and double Brillouin gain peaks in optical fibers.


We report the first experimental demonstration of pulse advancement with gain in optical fibers based on stimulated Brillouin scattering. Two experimental configurations are investigated and compared. One is to make the pulse propagate in a region slightly detuned from a gain peak where the group velocity change is negative and the other is to make use of the large anomalous dispersion appearing between two gain peaks. We experimentally show that the second method produces pulse advancement with lower distortion than the first one.
