Paper Abstract

Ultra-stable photonic fiber ring lasers are demonstrated at 10 and 40 Gpulses/s repetition rate operating under an optical-RF feedback mechanism with the in-ring hard pumped optical amplification. Ultra-stability is achieved when the circulating optical power is forced into saturation and hence acting as a distributed saturation absorber. Temporal diffraction with harmonic detuning are also analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. Further the pulse repetition rate of higher than 100GHz is achieved by incorporating an external temporal diffraction fiber length.
