Numerical and experimental results on stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in a graded-index multimode silica fiber are reported. The Brillouin Gain Spectrum (BGS) is shown to strongly depend on the pump and probe modal content. By use of a numerical model, the BGS at varying launching conditions of both pump and probe beams is computed. Numerical results show that intramodal and intermodal SBS contribute to the overall BGS. Experiments confirm the numerical predictions.
