Paper Abstract

Phase conjugate mirrors based on stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in multimode undoped quartz fibers can be operated with high reflectivity. The reflectivity and threshold of the SBS process and the damage threshold of the fiber entrance surface were measured for fibers with core diameter of 25, 50, 100, 200 micrometers . With calibration of the measurement system such fibers can operate with more than 80% reflectivity and the damage threshold lies above 0.9 GW/cm2. The SBS threshold is between 0.3 and 26 kW for all fibers investigated.
