Paper Abstract

The optimized power performance and the spectral tunability modeling of Erbium-doped fiber ring lasers are presented together with the measurement of the relative intensity noise. A Figure of Merit and an optimization procedure are defined in order to obtain maximum output power for a given pump power aiming the project design. Two tunable Erbium-doped fiber ring lasers were assembled. Their tunabilities are modeled and compared to the experimental results. Good agreement was obtained. We achieved a 32 nm tuning range, limited by the tuning range of the filter used. A relative intensity noise < - 120 dB/Hz, which enables to externally modulate such lasers up to 2.5 Gb/s, was also obtained.
