Paper Abstract

In this paper a new structure all fiber Q-switched Erbium-doped fiber laser by using all-fiber wavelength selective intensity modulator based on fiber grating loop mirror (FGLM) was reported. This Q-switched scheme not only modulates loss of the cavity but also selects wavelength. Stable optical pulse with 3 dB linewidth of 0.07 nm, pulse width of 1.4 microsecond(s) , average power of 14.2 mW, and peak power of 1.267 W at 80 mW pump power and 8 KHz repetition rates was obtained in experiments. The generation of single laser pulses and its stability were discussed.
