The propagation loss is canceled, and 5 dB of net gain is obtained by Brillouin amplification in a 37.5-km-long single-mode optical fiber. A narrow linewidth external cavity semiconductor laser is used as the pump source and a gain of 4.3 dB/mW pump power is measured. The Brillouin linewidth is measured to be 150 MHz in contrast to previous measurements of ∼20 MHz. The Brillouin Stokes shift was 11.3 GHz at 1.5 μm wavelength.
