Abstract

An efficient and tunable 1580-nm-band erbium-doped fiber ring laser is achieved by injection of amplified spontaneous emission in a conventional band by a fiber Bragg grating into the gain medium. The insertion of the fiber Bragg grating reduces the lasing threshold to 25%. The tuning range is 1560–1610 nm; the side-mode suppression ratio is better than 65 dB.
