Abstract

We investigate the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) effect in high-power thulium-doped fiber amplifier seeded with a narrow-linewidth fiber superfluorescent source or a conventional narrow-linewidth fiber laser. No random backward SBS pulses are observed when using a narrow-linewidth fiber superfluorescent source as the seed. The corresponding average power and peak power reach 153 W and 3.4 kW, respectively, only limited by the available pump power. This gives the average power and peak power extraction from the thulium-doped fiber amplifier with 17 fold enhancement, in comparison with the situation using the conventional narrow-linewidth fiber laser with similar central wavelength and spectral linewidth as the seed. This work indicates that using low coherent fiber superfluorescent sources is a good solution for power scaling in narrow-linewidth fiber amplifier system in order to overcome the limitation of SBS effect.
