Paper Abstract

In this paper, a segment of thulium-doped fiber is pumped by a 976nm laser diode.Broadband gain at centerwavelength of 1953nm is achieved. The maximum amplified spontaneous emission bandwidth is 8nm. Simultaneously, self- oscillation of wavelength spacing 0.073nm is observed. The output power and self- oscillation modes increase with pump power increasing and wavelength spacing of self-oscillation is unchanged.The relation between fiber length and output power at pump power 400mW is analyzed. Higher output power can be abtained by selecting a appropriate fiber length when pump power is unchanged. Through the experiment, a weak absorption band of thulium-doped fiber near 976nm is verified. The structure can be used as narrow linewidth broadband source near 1950nm with the characteristic of low cost, simple structure and good stability.
