Paper Abstract

We report all-PM-fiber ring external cavity, extremely wide tunable/swept lasers and MOPA sources basing on a newly developed SOAs and acousto-optic filter. Tuning ranges of 100 nm, 90 nm and 70 nm have been achieved at output powers of 1.0 mW, 5.0 mW and 10.0 mW, respectively. Instantaneous linewidth below 0.04 nm and sweeping rate up to 104 nm/s had been demonstrated. Power boosting up to 50 mW (PMF) and up to 250 mW (MMF) with tunability of around 50 nm had been also demonstrated by using MOPA systems basing on developed laser and different types of boosting SOAs.
