Abstract

We report on experiments performed with a cladding-pumped single-mode Er:Yb-codoped single-frequency fiber amplifier simultaneously seeded by a distributed-feedback diode at 1556nm and a tunable external-cavity diode laser emitting at a wavelength of about 1μm wavelength. The influence of the output wavelength of the external-cavity laser on amplification and reabsorption behavior of the Yb emission as well as the amplifier performance at a wavelength of 1556nm is examined experimentally.

Representative output spectra of the auxiliary signal recorded at pump powers of about 25 W for the case of the 8.4-m-long active fiber. The backward ASE spectrum was recorded at 7.5 W of pump power without auxiliary seed signal and is displayed for comparison and not to scale. The resolution bandwidth was set to 0.5 nm .
