Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a highly stable, all-polarization-maintaining fiber semiconductor ring laser source. It uses a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) to provide both gain and gain modulation from an external 5-GHz optical pulse train. The laser source generates 3.5-ps pulses up to a 50-GHz repetition rate with negligible amplitude pattern.
