Abstract

We present experimental and theoretical investigation of intensity noise features in SBS for experimental configuration utilized injection locking of two semiconductor lasers for Stokes signal generation. Significant decreasing of the intensity noise of the Stokes signal with the frequency equal to the Brillouin resonance is observed and analytically explained.
