Abstract

We show that the output Stoke pulse from a continuously (CW) pumped stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) amplifier is the sum of the transmitted input Stokes pulse, which propagates undistorted through the medium without amplification and additional delay, and of a Stokes shifted pump signal reflected by the electrostrictively induced acoustic wave, which contributes to the Stokes output signal with a delay determined by the time required for build up of the acoustic wave.
