Abstract

We report first evidence in support of chaotic stimulated Brillouin scattering under cw pump conditions involving a single Stoke and pump signal. A single-mode optical fiber is used as the nonlinear medium. The inclusion of external optical feedback modifies the form of the chaotic dynamics and results in a rich variety of classifiable precursor dynamical features.
