Abstract

Characterization of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in an elliptic-core two-mode fiber is experimentally demonstrated. The LP 0 1 or LP 1 1 mode is selectively launched to a fiber under test by a mode-selective coupler as a Brillouin pump, and the Brillouin gain spectra are analyzed for different mode pairs of the pump and probe waves. Intermodal SBS between counterpropagating LP 0 1 and LP 1 1 modes is observed, and the efficiency is measured to be about 58% of that of the SBS between the LP 0 1 modes.
