Paper Abstract

A stable, passively mode-locked erbium-doped fiber resonator is developed to generate tunable optical pulses with durations of 270 - 325 fs in the soliton regime. The lasing wavelength is tuned continuously over a wavelength range of 60 nm by rotating a bulk band-pass filter inserted in the resonator with a repetition frequency of 45.4 MHz. We reduced the timing jitter by minimizing the intensity fluctuation of the pump source using a feedback loop and by controlling the influence of airflow and temperature fluctuation of the resonator in a sealed box.
