13 August 1993 Angular field of view for Brillouin amplification
Author Affiliations +
The angular field of view (FOV) of a Brillouin amplifier is shown to be dependent upon the spectral bandwidth of the interacting beams. Theory and experiment reveal that for single longitudinal mode pulses of 8.5 nsec duration interacting in CS2 the FOV is equal to +/- 18 degree(s) in a counterpropagating geometry. Proper design of the amplifier is required however, in order to take advantage of the full FOV afforded by the Brillouin interaction.
