Paper Abstract

We use the fiber loop mirror to form a cavity in our laser system, and two 1.5 μm semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) also be used as a gain material in the cavity. We analyze the lasing power, SMSR, L-I curve and the stability of our designed symmetric resonator laser with various driving current of the SOA. According to our measured results, we can find that the polarization states of our lasers are stable and the output side-mode suppression ration (SMSR) of our laser is large. We successfully designed a symmetric two-way multi-wavelength wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) resonator laser system. The multi-wavelength continuous-wave(CW) fiber laser by utilizing the Fabry-Perot resonance can be applied to PolSK fiber-optic communication systems.
