Paper Abstract

An actively mode-locked fiber ring laser for generating wavelength-tunable optical pulses is demonstrated. An Er-Yb doped waveguide amplifier is used as an optical amplifier, and a Fabry-Perot laser diode is used as a modulator in the fiber laser. Moreover, we add a variable optical delay line to control the cavity length for maintaining a constant repetition frequency and pulsewidth at different wavelengths. The optical side-mode-suppression-ratio is better than 33.5 dB over the wavelength-tunable range of 46 nm.
