Abstract

We observe shot-to-shot fluctuations in the far-field fidelity of stimulated Brillouin scattering phase-conjugate mirrors in the saturated reflectivity regime under various experimental conditions. The fluctuations, which are not seen in the reflectivity, reflect a partial breakdown in the discrimination mechanism that selectively amplifies the conjugate mode above the stimulated Brillouin scattering noise seed.

Reflectivity and far-field fidelity of a single-mode pump beam focused into a cell containing N2 at 90 atm. The scatter in the fidelity data points close to SBS threshold arises from the sensitivity of the ratio C3/C2 to noise when both C2 and C3 are small.
