Paper Abstract

We proposed a novel structure of short-cavity random fiber laser (RFL) with a stable narrow linewidth output. A random-spaced Bragg grating array is used for random feedback. A ring optical path and the grating array form a short half-open cavity, and a high-precision π-phase-shifted grating (π-FBG) is placed in the ring path for filtering and modelocking to ensure a stable single-mode random laser operation. The linewidth of the laser is 257 Hz with 50 dB sidemode-suppression-ratio (SMSR). The laser wavelength drift measured in the laboratory is less than 1 pm within 20 min. The RFL has a simple structure and can achieve a stable narrow linewidth single mode output, which provides a new choice for high resolution optical fiber sensing.
