Abstract

The effect of temperature variation along a high-power fiber amplifier on the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold is considered theoretically. We show that for an end-pumped rare-earth-doped double-clad fiber the inhomogeneous distribution of temperature, which is caused by the absorption of pump radiation, may result in total suppression of SBS even for output powers well above 200W.
