nonlinear scattering
Direct conversion of a photon from one wavelength to one or more other wavelengths. Note 1: In an optical fiber, nonlinear scattering is usually not important below the threshold irradiance for stimulated nonlinear scattering. Note 2: Examples of nonlinear scattering are Raman and Brillouin scattering.
