Paper Abstract

Optical bistability in an L-band dual-wavelength erbium-doped fiber laser with linear overlapping cavities is investigated. The hysterisis bistabilities of the two lasing wavelengths evolve in antiphase. It has a large bistable region which may be controlled and adjusted by the EDF length and the cavity losses. Simultaneous dual-wavelength oscillations in the L-band are also achieved.
