Abstract

Based on the control of the linear losses of the cavity, we demonstrate the possibility to achieve filterless laser emission above 1.6 μm, from a C-band double-clad Er:Yb doped fiber amplifier. The concept is validated in both continuous wave and mode-locked regimes, using a figure-of-eight geometry. A unidirectional ring cavity is also tested in the continuous regime. Spectral properties of laser emissions are characterized as a function of the intracavity linear losses.
