Paper Abstract

A 4-element wavelength division multiplexed linear array of asymmetric distributed feedback fiber lasers (DFB-FL), pumped at 1480nm is reported. A very desirable feature of asymmetric DFB-FL is unidirectionality, and relevant principle is presented. Larger output powers are obtained from shorter ends of all the four asymmetric DFB-FLs which are fabricated in our laboratory by phase mask moving method. This obvious advantage has important applications to design sensor array. And furthermore, many experiments are completed to confirm it. Output flatness of the sensor array system presents a good performance with the applications of asymmetric DFB-FLs.
