Paper Abstract

In this work, a new stable dual-wavelength erbium fiber ring laser is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. This configuration is made by creating two symmetrical laser cavities with similar optical power. This topology allows the performance of two laser emission lines in single-longitudinal mode and with a power instability lower than 0.23 dB, and an optical signal-to-noise ratio higher than 40 dB for all the emitted wavelengths. The sensing capability of the FBGs enables this source to be also used as sensor-network multiplexing scheme. The system offers a better stability and higher optical signal to noise ratios than similar configurations.
