Paper Abstract

We discuss the mechanism responsible for the enhancement of Brillouin backscattered light in the context of recent experimental observations. The scattering takes place from the fluctuations produced during the nonlinear evolution of stimulated Raman scattering. The frequency spectra of Brillouin light shows blue and red shifted components consistent with experimental observations.
