Paper Abstract

Many sensing applications would benefit of multiplexing a maximum number of Distributed FeedBack Fiber Lasers (DFB FLs) on the same optical fiber. However, in such configurations, some physical mechanisms may impact DFB FLs stable operation, limiting, for instance, the number of DFB FLs spliced on the same fiber and the distance between them. The aim of this experimental study is to investigate the impact of optical feedback on DFB FLs stability. The results of our study are used to propose possible associated architectures.
