My new idea was that because of the Stokes frequency shift, this Brillouin Stokes line could experience unsaturated gain in the inhomogeneously broadened ruby laser. So the Stokes beam, re-reflected by the back laser mirror, returned to the liquid as a strong signal, joining the initial laser beam as a new wavelength, strong enough to cause its own Brillouin shift.
