Paper Abstract

In this work we explore the use of intracavity spectral filtering to enhance the performance of ytterbium-doped mode-locked fiber lasers. This technique has been experimentally demonstrated with a single-mode ytterbium-doped fiber laser operated with a ring cavity in the stretched-pulse regime. We characterized experimentally the effect of the long-wavelength filtering on the noise of a stretched-pulse cavity with a slightly negative global dispersion.
