Paper Abstract

This work presents the results of the study on the longitudinal modes behavior in an erbium doped fiber ring laser that uses two optical fibers--one mechanic and another electric. The operation of both filters is combined to cover the whole spectral range corresponding to the erbium fluorescence. The influence of the cavity length, host matrix and combination of two optical filters on the mode suppression and performance of the laser is discussed. We obtained the match conditions for operation of the optical filters which better improve the laser performance. An estimate of the relative intensity noise due to the introduction of the laser in a communication system is also presented.
