Abstract : The patent relates to a stimulated Brillouin scattered (SBS) tuned laser which uses stimulated Brillouin scattering. The output laser beam produces the acoustic wave that scatters the laser beam to thereby provide the scanning which impacts on a retroflective grating to provide a change in the frequency of the output laser beam.
