Paper Abstract

Switchable dual-wavelength with orthogonal polarizations fiber laser based on semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and polarization-maintaining fiber Bragg grating (PMFBG) at room temperature is proposed. Owing to the polarization dependent loss of the PMFBG, the laser can be designed to operate in stable dual-wavelength or wavelength-switching modes with a wavelength spacing of 0.336 nm at room temperature by adjusting the polarization controller (PC). The amplitude variation in nearly half an hour is less than 0.1 dB for both wavelengths, which is more stable than that of erbium doped fiber (EDF)-based laser with similar configuration.
