Paper Abstract

We describe a theoretical analysis of broadband stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) slow light delay in a single-mode optical fiber. A flat-top broadband SBS gain spectrum can be constructed by use of two broadband pump beams. We propose two schemes of the double broadband pumping. We show that, for each scheme, the spectral profile of the total SBS gain becomes wide and symmetric when the appropriate architecture of the two broadband pump beams is adopted accordingly. Our schemes can effectively reduce or even eliminate the broadening of signal pulse. It provides the use of shorter signal pulses for slow light control.
