Abstract
Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) is one of important nonlinear effects in optical fiber communication systems. Due to its low threshold, it limits the optical power that couples into the fiber. In this paper, Stimulated Brillouin scattering and the effect of phonon loss to SBS in optical fiber communication systems are investigated. In experiments we measure first the power of backward Stokes wave and output light under various input powers of the systems with different lengths of fibers. Then for observing the effect of the phonon blocker to the SBS threshold, we repeat the same experiments but with a phonon blocker inserted at different locations of the fiber link. The experiments indicate that adding phonon blocker to the fiber is able to increase the SBS threshold, and the blocker at different locations makes different effects.
