A new way to suppress stimulated Brillouin scattering by using an all-solid chalcogenide-tellurite photonic bandgap fiber is presented in the paper. The compositions of the chalcogenide and the tellurite glass are As2Se3 and TeO2-ZnO-Li2O-Bi2O3. The light and the acoustic wave are confined in the fiber by photonic bandgap and acoustic bandgap mechanism, respectively. When the pump wavelength is within the photonic bandgap and the acoustic wave generated by the pump light is outside the acoustic bandgap, the interaction between the optical and the acoustic modes is very weak, thus stimulated Brillouin scattering is suppressed in the photonic bandgap fiber.
