Abstract

We present a new self-referenced and single-ended method to measure the Brillouin-gain coefficient in monomode optical fibers accurately with high reliability. Our comparative measurements on several different fibers show that a fiber with a smaller optical effective mode area can nevertheless have a higher Brillouin threshold, thus confirming the significance of acousto-optic effective mode area.
