Abstract

Measurements of the probability density function of the mutual coherence of two stimulated-Brillouin-scattered Stokes outputs are reported. The variation of the probability density function with the polarization, relative intensities, and overlap of the pumping laser beams demonstrates that the coupling between the Stokes outputs is due to four-wave mixing.
