Paper Abstract

We purpose a new design configuration of a phase modulated mode-locked figure eight laser(F8L)with two EDFAs and experimentally measure its characteristics in this paper. Our designed F8L mode-locked laser concludes two EFDAs, an isolator, a phase modulator(PM), two polarization controllers(PC)and two unbalance couplers(90:10). Two PCs are put at the input and output of two EDFAs to fix the polarization of light to generate a stable mode-locking laser output. A nonlinear loop mirror(NLM) is used to make the pulse being compressed. The PM can add an RF modulation signal to help mode-locking of the ultrashort pulse. Preliminary experimental demonstration is given in this paper. We present the time relative responses of this system for high speed photography triggering.
