Paper Abstract

We report an experimental study on the spectral dependence of depolarized guided acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering (GAWBS) in a silica single-mode fiber (SMF) on acoustic impedance of external materials. The GAWBS spectrum was measured when the acoustic impedance was changed from 1.51 to 2.35 kg/s⋅mm2. With increasing acoustic impedance, the linewidth increased; the dependence was almost linear in the range up to ∼2.0 kg/s⋅mm2 with an acoustic impedance dependence coefficient of 0.16 MHz/kg/s⋅mm2, which is directly applicable to acoustic impedance sensing. Meanwhile, with increasing acoustic impedance, the central frequency nonlinearly decreased, which probably originates from the change in the effective outer diameter of the silica SMF.
