Paper Abstract

The role of stochastic effects on the nonlinear dynamics of stimulated Brillouin scattering in single mode fiber with and without external feedback is presented. Distinction between chaos and stochastic behavior is established using newly developed measurement procedures. Also presented are first experimental observation of spatio-temporal patterns, defect formations, and preliminary evidence of defect induced turbulence in stimulated Brillouin scattering generated in multi-mode optical fiber. Results of a theoretical analysis of these phenomena are given.
