Paper Abstract

In this work, a multiwavelength Raman fiber laser based on a highly birefringent photonic crystal fiber is presented. A laser resonator is formed when the Raman amplification with cooperative Rayleigh scattering in a dispersion compensating fiber is used as a distributed mirror and combined with a highly birefringent photonic crystal fiber loop mirror. The multiwavelength Raman fiber laser presents 11 stable channels per nm with a peak power of ~1.5mW. Stable multiwavelength lasing at room temperature is achieved due to the low sensitivity to temperature and environmental noise of the highly birefringent photonic crystal fiber based fiber loop mirror.
