Abstract
We demonstrate frequency-shifted light storage in a photonics crystal fiber (PCF) via stimulated Brillouin scattering. Because of the ultra-small core of PCF, only 20 W of peak power is used for the write and read pulses to store and retrieve the data pulse at much lower peak power of 200 mW. A 3-nanosecond-long data pulse is stored for up to 11 ns with a maximum readout efficiency of 11% at 7 ns storage time using main acoustic mode; a polarization-independent frequency-shift stored pulse is realized by using the high-order acoustic modes with a shifted frequency of ~20GHz and a readout efficiency of 6% at 6ns storage time.
