Stimulated Brillouin scattering properties in a single-mode tellurite glass fiber were studied using a cw laser with an operating wavelength of 1.54 µm. The Brillouin frequency shift vB and the gain linewidth ΔvB were 7.882 GHz and 23.6 MHz, respectively. A Brillouin gain coefficient gB in the range of 1.47×10-10-2.16×10-10 m/W was measured. The higher gain coefficient of the tellurite fiber, together with its relatively low loss compared with other non-silica fibers, makes it a suitable candidate for realizing efficient, all-optical, slow-light devices.
