    Abstract :

    In this paper, a reduction of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold using bidirectional pumping with pump recycling technique is demonstrated. Two pumping schemes; direct method, and bidirectional pumping with recycling method are experimentally investigated. Using 10 km single mode fiber, the proposed technique exhibits a low threshold power of 6 mW against 9.5 mW for direct pumping method. In addition, the measured Stokes signal power is higher for bidirectional pumping with recycling scheme. The results have proved that the proposed technique improved the Stokes signal power and reduced the SBS threshold power compared to direct injection method.
