Paper Abstract

In this paper, a self-Q-switched Er-doped fiber (EDF) laser is reported, which employs stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in single-mode (SM) fiber as a passively Q-switched mechanism. The stable nanosecond magnitude optical pulses were obtained. Pulses with peak power 800 mW, pulse width 2.2 ns and repetition rate about 64.5 MHz could be achieved, when the pumped power was 88.0 mW. A few factors that affect the pulse characters are studied.
