Paper Abstract

The construction and operating characteristics of a compact self starting mode locked erbium fiber laser are described in this paper. The laser employs a Fabry-Perot cavity with a fiber grating as one reflector and a nonlinear mirror based on a saturable absorber as the other. It operates at a pump power of less than 50 mW and produces mode locked pulses of 16.5 ps duration at a frequency of 3.25 MHz and a peak power of about 20 W.
