Abstract

A triple-wavelength erbium-doped compound ring fiber laser using the fiber-based triple-ring filter (TRF) is proposed and experimentally investigated. Using the fiber-based TRF laser scheme, the proposed laser can lase three wavelengths simultaneously. The fiber laser retrieve the optical side-mode suppression ratios (SMSRs) of 40.2, 40.4 and 41.6 dB and the output powers of -9, -8.8 and -7.6 dBm at the wavelengths 1555.89, 1556.77 and 1557.66 nm, respectively. The mode spacing of the triple-wavelength fiber laser is nearly 0.9 nm. Moreover, the output power stability of the ring laser has also been measured and analyzed.
