Abstract

A configuration for linear cavity Brillouin fiber laser (BFL) generation is demonstrated using a standard single-mode fiber, two optical circulators, a 3dB coupler, and a 95/5 coupler to allow high efficiency. With a Brillouin pump (BP) power of 13dBm, the laser peak power is 12.3dB higher than a conventional linear cavity BFL at an upshifted wavelength of 0.086nm from the BP wavelength. In addition, it is revealed that the BFL peak power can be higher than the transmitted BP peak power when the BP power exceeds the second Brillouin Stokes threshold power.
