Bidirectional mode-locked all-normal dispersion fiber laser (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Bowen Li; Shu-Wei Huang

Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate the first bidirectional all-normal dispersion (ANDi) fiber laser. Single-pulse bidirectional mode-locking was established at 36 MHz and stably maintained for hours. Both directions showed broad spectra of more than 20 nm (10 dB) while the shapes were slightly different. The repetition rate in both directions can be tuned from 100 Hz to 150 Hz by changing the pump power. More significantly, the pulse energies in both directions were larger than 2 nJ and more than 20 nJ can be potentially achieved. Therefore, our laser represents a promising solution for compact dual-comb nonlinear spectroscopy.
