Abstract : The goal of this thesis was to obtain phase conjugation in multi-mode optical fiber via stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) with the aid of a barium titanate crystal which formed a phase conjugate cavity for the Stokes beam. SBS was demonstrated but the SBS threshold was unaffected by the presence of the barium titanate crystal and no evidence for the presence of phase conjugation in the optical fiber was obtained.
