Paper Abstract

Laser sources based on rare-earth-doped single-mode optical fibres offer considerable potential as narrow-linewidth sources. Fibre laser sources have the capacity to produce highly-coherent low-noise output pumped by laser diodes. Fibre lasers are inherently compatible with optical fibres for transmission and sensing applications. Techniques for producing narrow-linewidth and single-longitudinal-mode operation in fibre lasers are reviewed.
