Mode locked fiber laser training kit
Author(s): Sophie Leprevost; Patrice Le Boudec

Paper Abstract

This paper presents kits dedicated to optical phenomena education proposed by Idil Fibres Optiques. It shows the teaching means used to guarantee students the best understanding of physical phenomena related to optical fibers. In a second part we present one of these kits : the mode-locked fiber laser. This kit allows in particular to understand the effects of chromatic dispersion, non-linearity and mode-locking during the ultra-short pulse generation in mode-locked fiber lasers with "figure-8" and unidirectional ring cavities.
