Abstract

A simple and strictly all-fiber 1300-nm cw laser is presented. It is tunable over 16  nm with 0.5-nm linewidth and several milliwatts of output power in the whole tuning range from 1292 to 1308  nm. The setup uses a fiber Bragg grating as a combined tuning element and narrow-band output mirror. The simplicity and stability of this system are due to the following two characteristics: First, polarization control is not necessary anywhere in the system, and second, a wavelength-selective system and a narrow-band mirror are combined into one novel fiber-optic element.
