Paper Abstract

This paper describes a tunable fiber soliton laser. This laser is configured as a ring with a silica optical fiber gain medium. A length of 300 m conventional fiber provides the negative group velocity dispersion, self-phase modulation and Raman gain effect. The time-dispersion tuning technology is used for wavelength selection, because the Raman gain of silica fiber has a wide spectrum. The different wavelengths have different optical lengths, when they propagate in a optical fiber. We use an active modelocking Nd:YLF laser which has wavelength 1.313 micrometers with pulse width of 70 ps for pumping source and silica optical fiber of 300 m for gain medium and group velocity dispersion compensator. The pulse width (FWHM) of 195 fs has been got, the laser wavelength is 1.395 micrometers and tunable region of 47 nm near 1.397 micrometers .
