Abstract

We report on an experimental investigation of stimulated Brillouin scattering pumped with a Bessel beam. Owing to the extended interaction length along the diffraction-free propagation, higher-order Stokes components are generated in a bulk Brillouin-active medium with odd and even orders propagating in opposite directions. The spatial, spectral, and temporal properties of the interacting waves are discussed.

Scheme of the experimental setup: PBS, polarization beam splitter; QWP, quarter-wave plate; A, 2.5° quartz axicon; CCD, CCD camera for beam-profile recording; F’s, bare-tip single-mode fibers. A double fiber-input monochromator is used for frequency measurements.

Far-field images of the output beams: (a) backward SBS at low peak power above the threshold (no phase conjugation), (b) backward SBS at high energy in the pulse, (c) pump beam, (d) pump beam (ring) and a second SBS (central spot) after the second threshold.

Fig. 3

Spectra recorded by the grating monochromator: (a) central spot in the forward direction, where the second Stokes frequency is visible, (b) backward-scattered beam with third and first Stokes frequencies, (c) four-wave mixing inside the fiber used as a ruler for the relative frequency measurements. The line labeled cal.  is a reference frequency.

Typical temporal pulse shapes: (a) backward-scattered pulse, (b) forward-scattered second Stokes, (c) pulse shape in the forward ring. In (c) the outer part of the ring (solid curve) is affected by the stimulated scattering, whereas the inner part (dashed curve) is not affected by the interaction.
