Paper Abstract

Because of the phase modulation (PM) and amplitude modulation (AM) of the probe signal from the electric optical modulator (EOM), the Brillouin gain/loss spectrum becomes asymmetric. The central Brillouin frequency is shifted from that of AM pulse. The maximum extinction ratio of the EOM is limited to ~29 cB for power splitting ratio of 51% to 49%. The PM also induces sub-peaks in the Brillouin spectrum due to the interaction of phonon field and AM/PM based probe beam. The sub-peaks is enhanced when the beat frequency of pump and probe beam is off from the Brillouin frequency.
