Paper Abstract

We demonstrate pulsed operation in a fiber laser based on a polarization switched three-mirror resonator. An electrooptic polarization switch is incorporated within the external cavity feedback thus allowing for polarization rotation of the beam returning to the resonator. Time and frequency domain analysis show that external polarization switching provides a frequency shifted feedback effect leading to a pulsed operation regime. Pulse rates five times higher than those used for driving the switch can be obtained owing to the population dynamics of the fiber laser.
