Paper Abstract

We have proposed and experimentally demonstrated a stabilized and tunable S-band erbium-doped fiber ring laser by using a Fabry-Perot laser diode (FPLD) and a fiber Fabry-Perot filter inside the ring cavity. Due to the bandwidth limitation of the FPLD, the effective operating range of the proposed laser is confined to 1490.28 to 1521.22 nm with a tuning step of 0.08 nm. A side-mode suppression ratio of <39.1 dB at 0.05 nm and an output power of <0.4 dBm can be achieved while this laser is tuned from 1490.28 to 1510.27 nm. Zero output wavelength variation and output power fluctuation ≤ 0.03 dB have also been obtained.
