Paper Abstract

Fiber ultrafast pulses such as mode-locked and noise-like pulses have useful optical characteristics for high precision metrology applications. In this study, we develop an ytterbium doped fiber laser with all normal dispersion which can selectively generate two pulse modes, mode-locked and noise-like pulses, by a turn-key system including polarization control and selective detection parts. The spectral and temporal characteristics of two pulses generated from the single oscillator are analyzed and compared with each other through optical spectrum, RF spectrum and autocorrelation. Furthermore, spectral coherence characteristics are verified through interference signals generated by balanced and unbalanced arm interferometers.
