Abstract

Single-frequency and single-polarization lasing can be generated in a compact self-injection locked fiber Fabry-Perot laser with a short fiber Bragg grating feedback cavity. No discrete polarization control components are required. Different wavelengths across the laser gain bandwidth can be generated by an appropriate combination of cavity designs and feedback fiber Bragg gratings. A 10-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero transmission test demonstrates the laser's applicability for optical fiber communications.
