Abstract

Stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in a perfluorinated graded-index polymer optical fiber (POF) with 120-μm core was experimentally observed at 1.55-μm wavelength with pump-probe technique. The Brillouin gain spectrum (BGS) was detected with extremely high signal-to-noise ratio, even with a short POF and scrambled polarization state. We also investigated the BGS dependences on probe power and temperature, indicating that SBS in a POF can be utilized to develop high-accuracy temperature sensors.
