Abstract

A polarization-controlling device was developed based on the fact that there can be a time delay between the seeder and the pumping beams during the amplification of a stimulated Brillouin scattering signal. The device causes two coaxially transmitted pulsed beams with orthogonal polarizations to have the same polarization in order to implement amplification by the pumping effect. An experiment showed that good pumping amplification can be achieved by using this technique.
