Abstract

The recently introduced harmonic injection locking is a method for generating pulse trains at high repetition rates from passively mode-locked lasers. We report the simultaneous injection locking of two spectral bands in an erbium-doped fiber laser by injection of two spectrally distinct and temporally synchronized pulse trains. The injection-locked laser simultaneously produced pulses at wavelengths of 1.53 and 1.55 μm, each at a 7.5-GHz repetition rate and with a pulse width of 10 ps. We compared the experimental results with those of a passively mode-locked laser.
