Paper Abstract

With adoption of wavelength division multiplexing scheme to optical communication systems, multiwavelength optical signal source has drawn considerable attention. The conventional multiwavelength sources usually consist of the same number of lasers as wavelength channels and therefore become bulky and costly. In this paper, we propose and implement a novel multiwavelength generation scheme using a high-birefringence fiber loop mirror in a semiconductor-fiber ring laser. Due to the inhomogeneous gain broadening characteristics of semiconductor optical amplifier, up to 22 channels with 0.8 nm wavelength spacing can be obtained at room temperature.
