Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a design procedure and experiment results for a continuous-action fiberoptic laser based on PM-Er-PCF (polarization-maintaining erbium-doped photonic crystal fiber). To the best of our knowledge, it's the first erbium-doped photonic fiber that maintains polarization. Stable single-wavelength actions were observed in a laser ring configuration. A PM-Er-PCF optimization and an analysis of photonic crystal structure's impact on laser parameters are demonstrated in the theoretical part of this article. The presented fiber laser can be used as a signal source in WDM systems.
