Paper Abstract

Backward light scattering processes always take place in fiber lasers. They create additional feedback in laser resonator changing qualitatively the laser operation. We have described for the first time the mechanisms of their influence on lasing in number of fiber configurations. The understanding of the mechanisms allows us to get several important scientific results suitable for rapid practical applications in the process of elaboration of new fiber sources of light.
