Abstract

Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) has become a favorable underlying mechanism in many demonstrations of all-optical variable delay in standard fibers, often referred to as slow and fast light. Over 100 journal papers and numerous conference sessions have been dedicated to SBS slow light since 2005. In this paper, recent research in this area is reviewed. Following a short introduction to the topic, several specific trends in contemporary work are highlighted: the optimization of the SBS pump spectrum for extended slow light delay and reduced pulse distortion; SBS slow light demonstrations in nonstandard, highly nonlinear fibers; applications of SBS slow light to the delay of analog waveforms; and the role of polarization. Finally, a brief concluding perspective is provided.
