High power lasers are being used for an increasing number of applications in medicine, industry and the military. Increasing demands for high power, small size, and light weight have made the use of high-power fiber lasers a very attractive alternative to traditional solid state, gas, and chemical lasers. However, when operating at high power levels, fiber lasers are subject to nonlinear effects such as stimulated Raman scattering, stimulated Brillouin scattering. Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS) is a nonlinear optical effect in which light interacts with a propagated acoustic wave. The Brillouin thresholds and the Brillouin frequencies for the standard SMF28E and Nufern 1060XP fibers are identified.
