Paper Abstract

Multiwavelength lasing in the random distributed feedback fiber laser is demonstrated by employing an all fiber Lyot filter. Stable multiwavelength generation is obtained, with each line exhibiting sub-nanometer line-widths. A flat power distribution over multiple lines is also obtained, which indicates the contribution of nonlinear wave mixing towards power redistribution and equalization in the system. The multiwavelength generation is observed simultaneously in first and second Stokes waves.
