Abstract

A watt-level tunable 1.5 μm narrow linewidth fiber ring laser using a temperature tuning π-phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating (π-PSFBG) is demonstrated here, to the best of our knowledge, for the first time. The π-PSFBG is employed as both a narrow band filter and a wavelength tuning component, and its central wavelength is thermally tuned by a thermo-electric cooler. The maximum laser power is about 1.1 W with a linewidth of 318  MHz (2.57  pm) and a power fluctuation of less than 3%. The wavelength tuning range of the laser is about 1.29 nm with a sensitivity of 14.33  pm/°C, and the wavelength fluctuation is about 0.2 pm. This work provides important reference for tunable fiber lasers with both high power and narrow linewidth.
