Paper Abstract

We report on an electronically tunable continuous-wave (CW) Ytterbium doped polarization maintaining fiber laser with more than 100 nm tuning range and more than 10 W linearly polarized single spatial mode laser output. The laser can be continuously tuned from 1027 nm to 1103 nm without any parasitic lasing peak with the 10dB linewidth of 0.1 nm. The maximum achievable tuning range of the fiber laser was from 1025 nm to 1124 nm with companying parasitic lasing peaks around 1040 nm. The usage of an intra-cavity acousto-optic tunable filter allows for the fast electronic tunability with less than 50 &mgr;s response time and random wavelength access capability.
