Abstract

We report on a narrowband 5W cw fiber laser incorporating a point-by-point fiber Bragg grating inscribed into the core of a Yb3+-doped double-clad fiber. The laser featured excellent long-term wavelength and power stability (0.3%), as well as a very narrow (15pm) linewidth, when passive temperature stabilization of the grating was implemented.

Stability of the output power, center wavelength, and laser linewidth over a 4 h period with (thick black curve) and without (thin gray curve) a temperature stabilizing water-cooled copper block. The optical spectrum analyzer had a maximum resolution of 10 pm and the step size was set to 2 pm . The relative center wavelength was calculated by subtracting the operating wavelength from the mean center wavelength of 1078.270 nm with the cooling applied and 1078.470 nm without cooling applied.
