Abstract

An experimental comparison of stability between two different fiber laser topologies is carried out. The lasers are based on ring resonators that include highly doped Er-fibers. Both topologies use fiber Bragg grating reflectors in order to select the emission wavelengths. The experimental results confirms that the novel topology based on fiber optic circulators arranged in a hybrid serial-parallel configuration offers better stability and a higher optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) than the simpler one based on a parallel configuration.
