Abstract

Intensity noise characteristics of a single-mode Brillouin fiber ring laser are experimentally analyzed from 100kHz up to 18GHz. The Stokes wave is shown to be shot-noise limited to 155dBHz for a 1mA detected photocurrent over the whole spectral range 100MHz18GHz. The pump-to-Stokes noise filtering efficiency is evaluated by artificially increasing the pump intensity noise. It evidences that a shot-noise-limited Brillouin laser could be realized by using a narrow-linewidth semiconductor laser pump, for stringent microwave photonics applications.
