Paper Abstract

This paper presents an examination of power dissipation in a nonlinear optical medium during the coherent transfer of energy from a pump to a signal beam, and quantitatively relates this dissipation (through the fluctuation-dissipation theorem) to the spectrum of thermal fluctuations that give rise to light-scattering noise. Calculations are presented for two-wave mixing in an artificial Kerr media using a powerful stochastic model for computer simulation of amplitude, phase, and intensity fluctuations due to light-scattering noise.
