Nonlinear Scattering Effects in Optical Fibers
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 74, 379-405, 2007
Abstract
The nonlinear scattering effects in optical fiber occur due to inelastic-scattering of a photon to a lower energy photon. This paper describes stimulated Brillouin scattering and stimulated Raman scattering processes. Their thresholds, reduction in power penalty and applications along with comparative study of these effects are also presented.
