Paper Abstract

A three-wavelength ytterbium-doped fiber laser based on a long period grating induced mechanically in a twisted holey fiber is proposed and demonstrated. The long period grating is inserted into the laser cavity to introduce inhomogeneous loss in order to obtain up to three output laser wavelengths at room temperature. The lasing wavelengths are localized at 1081.5 nm, 1090.5 nm, and 1100.7 nm with an average wavelength separation of 9.6 nm which can be slightly modified by changing the twist rate of the holey fiber into the laser cavity.
