Paper Abstract

Application of stimulated Brillouin scattering and backward stimulated Raman scattering to generate picosecond pulses at a wavelength of 1.54 micrometers has been investigated experimentally. Pulses with energies of 5 mJ, durations of about 20 ps and angular divergence near a diffractive limit have been obtained.
