Abstract

The first (to our knowledge) observation of Brillouin dynamic grating in conventional single-mode fibers is reported, and the characterization is demonstrated with respect to the external parameters for the grating generation. When a 100m single-mode fiber is used, a reflectance of 8% with a spectral bandwidth as low as 2.4MHz is achieved, which is less than 10% of ordinary Brillouin gain bandwidth.
