Paper Abstract

The phase difference between two beams generated by stimulated Brillouin scattering of two partially overlapped laser beams is measured. The measured phase difference is compared with predictions of computer simulations. Both theory and experiment show that the phase difference is a random process whose probability distribution depends on pulse-width, phonon lifetime and the degree of the overlap between the pumping lasers.
