Paper Abstract

Fiber laser with two polarization-dependent output states is demonstrated. On one hand, nonlinear polarization rotation induced intensity-dependent loss of nonlinear optical loop mirror can balance mode competition of homogenous broadening gain medium, and thus allows for stable room-temperature multiwavelength generation. On the other hand, intensity-dependent transmission can act as an equivalent saturable absorber, which results in passively mode-locking of fiber laser. It may be a potential multifunction fiber laser.
