Paper Abstract

In high power applications of multimode optical fibers such as high power beam delivery and optical phase conjugation, the estimation of critical power of stimulated Brillouin scattering is important. Nevertheless, the estimations have taken no account of mode dispersion effect to date. In this paper we show that the critical power in a multimode fiber depends on the numerical aperture (NA) of fiber, i.e. mode dispersion, and fmd out the analytical solution taking account ofthe effect. The critical power increases as the fiber NA increases.
