Paper Abstract

In this paper, modelling results are presented for a passively mode-locked F8L supporting a linear polarization state. Starting from A.S.E., the model produces soliton-like, chirped, red shifted, ultra-short pulses. The self-starting conditions of the laser are investigated, and the EDFA gain threshold to passively mode-lock the laser is also determined as a function of the center coupler splitting ratio (Cr). In addition, the influence of Cr to the F8L operating parameters and output pulse characteristics such as width, peak power, chirp, Self- Frequency Shift and envelope distortion is reported.
