Paper Abstract

The noise performance of the beat note generated by a dual-polarization fiber grating laser is very critical for sensing applications. To reduce the noise of the beat note, external optical feedback is employed with a fiber Bragg grating as a reflector. It then shows that a longer feedback time results in larger noise reduction. With a 50 m single mode fiber as the delay line, more than 20 dB phase noise reduction has been achieved for a dual-polarization fiber grating laser which shows a phase noise of -92 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset with external optical feedback applied.
