Abstract

An experiment is conducted to study the scattering of Brillouin light waves using a coherent self-heterodyne detection system. The external light-wave frequency translation technique is used, and the results show a two-state behavior for the critical modulation frequency. This two-state behavior does not agree with the case of Kerr nonlinearity. The paper describes the optical equipment, which consist of a frequency translator, an optical amplifier, and an optical ring and frequency shifter.
