Abstract

Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in a microcavity is usually realized by employing a wavelength tunable external cavity diode laser (TECDL) as the pump source. In this Letter, we report the observation of SBS in a high Q microcavity based on a TECDL-free scheme. The microcavity is employed as a mode-reflecting mirror for constructing a fiber-ring laser and, simultaneously, pumped by the fiber-ring lasing with intrinsic resonance latching. Several regimes are observed in a microcavity with a diameter of 215  μm, such as single lasing pumped SBS and multiple regular lasing pumped SBSs (single or cascaded). The microwave signals from the beat notes of the composite output lasing are measured with full-width at half-maximum on the scale of kilohertz at 11 and 22  GHz, indicating the high coherence between the pump and the Brillouin lasing.
