Abstract
We report a novel kind of all-optical dynamic grating based on Brillouin scattering in polarization maintaining fiber (PMF). A moving acoustic grating is generated by stimulated Brillouin scattering between optical waves in one polarization, and used to reflect orthogonally polarized waves at different wavelength. A 3-dB bandwidth of ~ 100 MHz is observed with the tunable reflectivity of up to 2% in a 30 m PMF.
