Paper Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a multiwavelength mode-locked fiber laser with cylindrical vector beam generation for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The mode-locking mechanism is nonlinear polarization rotation, and the multiwavelength operation is contributed to the in-line birefringence fiber filter with periodic multiple passbands formed by incorporating a section of polarization maintaining fiber into the laser cavity with a polarizer. Furthermore, using the mode selective coupler, which acts as mode converter from fundamental mode to higher-order mode, multiwavelength mode-locked cylindrical vector beams have been obtained, which may have potential applications in mode-division multiplexing optical fiber communication and material processing.
