Paper Abstract

A high stable wavelength-tunable fiber laser is experimentally demonstrated by using a digital-micromirror-device (DMD) processor and a polarization-maintaining erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA).The electronic-addressed DMD processor is able to select and couple a waveband from of the polarization-maintaining EDFA back into the fiber ring to generate a narrow line-width laser output. The tunable fiber laser shows a line-width of 0.02nm, a tuning step of 0.08nm over the c-band and a side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) greater than 50 dB. The output power uniformity of 0.016dB is achieved by using the automatic power control (APC) system under room temperature. The center wavelength fluctuation during 1 hour is below 0.01 nm.
