Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Dr, Robert G Harrison as follows The contractor will investigate expansion of his existing computer code in order to model Stimulated Brillouin Scattering SBS in an optical fiber and its dependence on numerical aperture and laser power He will investigate the appearance of both stochastic and deterministic elements in the observed SBS and using his modified computer model, determine the optimum conditions for generating steady-state SBS with maximum efficiency,
