Paper Abstract

Adopting noise initiation mode of stimulated Brillion scattering (SBS), the influence of phonon lifetime and gain coefficient of medium on power limiting characteristic is numerically investigated. By using actual parameters of three media, CCl4, Acetone, and CS2, the waveforms of transmitted pulses are simulated. It shows that, different media have little effect on the front peak of waveform, while have an obvious effect on the height of power limiting platform. When using the medium which has short phonon lifetime and small gain coefficient, the height of power limiting platform is comparatively high. When using the medium which has long phonon lifetime and large gain coefficient, the height of power limiting platform is comparatively low. In experiment, focusing 1064nm, 8ns, 18mJ pulses into these three media respectively, the waveforms of transmitted pulses are obtained. And it is shown that, the experimental results are in good agreement with the conclusions of theoretical simulations.
