Abstract

We demonstrate Brillouin lasing in a single-mode TeO2Bi2O3ZnONa2O tellurite fiber. A peak value of Brillouin gain coefficients of 1.6989×1010mW is measured on the basis of gain characteristics. An all-fiber Brillouin laser with a maximum unsaturated power of 54.6mW at 1550nm and a slope efficiency of 38.2% are achieved from a 200m tellurite fiber by employing a ring cavity. In addition, a tunable Brillouin comb tellurite fiber laser is demonstrated.
