After passing through four dispersive-prisms, the Q-switched Cr:LiSAF laser with broad frequency band is focused into carbon disulfide (CS_(2)) to produce backward stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS). Our experimental results and illustrative analysis have shown that this frequency-dispersive method can efficiently reduce the broad-band SBS intensity threshold, compress its pulsewidth, and improve the beam quality.
