Abstract

A new numerical model which incorporates Brillouin shift frequency variations arising from fibre inhomogeneities has been developed for stimulated Brillouin scattering in optical fibres. This enables simulations of backscattered and transmitted power as functions of input power based only on known physical and material parameters as well as the polarisation factor and the measured Brillouin gain linewidth for the fibre. Agreement between modelled and experimental power characteristics for a CW input is excellent.
