Paper Abstract

A new method of relaxation oscillation locking is demonstrated. It is based on injection of a pulsed periodical radiation into fiber laser at the wavelength which is not equal to the fiber laser wavelength. It must be in the amplification range of active ions. The new method was experimentally verified by using a Yb-Er fiber laser whose wavelength was 1535 nm. Stable pulse-periodic emission was observed in case of injection of diode laser radiation at the wavelength 1550 nm. The pulse repetition frequency varied from 20 to 100 KHz depending on the pump power.
