Paper Abstract

The analysis of polarization evolution in a tunable fiber laser in a ring configuration is presented, an interferometer was used to tune the laser and was manufactured with thin-core fiber (Thin-Core Fiber, TCF). The interferometer was achieved by splicing a segment of thin-core fiber (Thin-Core Fiber, TCF) between two segments of single-mode fiber SMF-28 (Single-Mode Fiber). Single and double and triple line emissions were obtained by means of the angular micrometric deflection in the TCFMI (Thin-Core Fiber Modal Interferometer) interferometer section, as well as depending on the position of the polarization controller plates (PC1 and PC2). Also, a uniform tuning was achieved, depending on the polarization state of the pumping source and the position of the plates of the second polarization controller (PC2), which started at 1534.70265 nm and moved to the left side to 1531.65142 nm and the evolution of the polarization state in this tuning range was observed. A tuning range of 1527.01738 to 1553.66363 nm was also achieved by means of the angular micrometric deflection in the TCFMI interferometer section.
