Abstract

A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with an inverse-Gaussian apodization function is proposed and fabricated. It is shown that such a FBG possesses dual-wavelength narrow transmission peaks and the wavelength spacing between the two peaks is easily controllable during fabrication. Incorporating such a FBG filter into a fiber laser with a linear cavity, we obtain stable dual-wavelength emission with 0.146‚ÄČnm wavelength spacing. This arrangement provides a simple and low cost way of achieving dual-wavelength fiber laser operation.
