If we could eliminate the phenomenon of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS),
we could create pulsed laser sources for spectroscopic and coherent lidar
applications, as well as multi-kW narrow-linewidth fiber laser sources for
coherently phased laser arrays. With that in mind, we used a novel fiber fabrication
method known as the moltencore method to realize a new class of optical fibers:
all-glass optical fibers free from the effects of SBS.
