Paper Abstract

A simple multi-wavelength erbium-doped fiber laser with narrow-line-width lasing output was proposed and demonstrated using fiber Bragg gratings and Arrayed-Waveguide Gratings (AWG). Wavelength competition was naturally prevented in this kind of laser by using AWG in the linear-cavity. As an example, a triple-wavelength erbium-doped fiber laser was experimentally investigated. Using the laser scheme, the proposed laser can laser three wavelengths simultaneously. The fiber laser retrieved the optical side-mode suppression ratio of over 50dB and the average output power of -10.714, -10.649 and -10.578dBm at 1554.710, 1555.516 and 1556.421nm, respectively. And the 3-dB bandwidth of each laser was less than 0.010nm. Moreover, the output power stability of the laser had also been measured and analyzed. Experiment results showed that the laser can be operated stably in narrow-line-width with single- and triple-wavelength output at room temperature.
