Abstract

We have investigated stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in carbon disulfide, using a frequency-narrowed Cr,Tm,Ho:YAG laser operating at 2.12 μm. Threshold reduction with a novel loop geometry is also demonstrated. A model for the loop-SBS scheme is developed and compared with experimental results. Backscatter power, energy, and conjugate-fidelity data are presented.
