Abstract

We propose and experimentally investigate a multiwavelength Brillouin fiber laser (MBFL) with triple frequency spacing by employing a modular structure. In this scheme, we obtain nine channels optimized with frequency spacing of 0.259 nm. The single, double, and triple Brillouin frequency spacing for the MBFL can be easily realized by utilizing this modular structure. The impact of Brillouin pump (BP) power, BP wavelength, and erbium-ytterbium-doped fiber amplifier (EYDFA) output power on the performance of the MBFL is investigated, respectively. We also study the generation of beating frequency microwave signals based on single, double, and triple frequency spacing MBFL. 10.5 GHz, 21.48 GHz, and 31.77 GHz microwave signals with 3 dB linewidth of 16.4 MHz, 15.2 MHz, and 12.8 MHz are generated, respectively.
