1 May 1990 Study of stimulated Brillouin scattering driven by a 10-ps pump

We present in this paper observations of stimulated Briiiouin backscattered light from a plasma irradiated by a 1 0 ps 1 .06 m laser pump, at intensities between 1 012 and 1 016 W cm2. During this short time duration, the observed growth of the instability can be explained only in terms of a purely temporal growth, in contrast to the convective growth normally associated with this instability.
