Paper Abstract

The coherence properties of a widely tunable, multilongitudinal-mode erbium-doped fiber ring laser are investigated by means of an extremely long-arm scanning Michelson interferometer. A return of the coherence is observed at each integer multiple ofthe cavity length with a slowly decaying envelope over several kilometres.
