Paper Abstract

In this paper, a simple and all-fiber frequency comb generator by stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF) is demonstrated. The optical resonator is composed of a segment of highly nonlinear fiber and two optical loop mirrors. Besides these, a segment of 6m-long erbium-doped fiber was placed in the resonator to provided linear gain. A tunable laser and a 980-nm laser diode were used as the Brillouin pump and the EDF pump respectively. When the wavelength and the power of pump lasers are adjusted correctly, dozens of comb lines with comb spacing in 0.075 nm (9.37 GHz) are obtained.
