Paper Abstract

A four-wave mixing assisted multiwavelength semiconductor optical amplifier laser is experimentally demonstrated in a fiber ring cavity. A sampled linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating is used as the wavelength-selective component. Four-wave mixing enhances the number of peak-power-equalized lasing wavelengths and operation stability of the ring laser. The extinction ratio of the 20 multiwavelengths output is greater than 40 dB, and the peak-power difference is less than 3 dB.
