Abstract

We present an experiment in which the intracavity broadened spectrum of a Raman fiber laser is sliced by using a narrow-bandwidth optical filter. High-contrast fast fluctuations of the Stokes power are observed at the output of the optical filter. The statistics of the power fluctuations strongly change with the central wavelength of the filter, and rare extreme events are found to be generated in the far wings of the spectrum.

Experiments. Dashed lines: optical power spectrum of the intracavity Stokes field incident on the output cavity FBG mirror. Full lines: same optical power spectrum but filtered by the narrow-bandwidth optical filter with a central wavelength (a) close the center of the Stokes spectrum and (b) detuned by 1.5 nm from the center of the Stokes spectrum.

Experiments. Time series (a), (b) and PDFs (c), (d) of the Stokes power when the narrow-bandwidth optical filter is (a), (c) close to the center of the Stokes spectrum (Fig. 1(a)) and (b), (d) detuned by 1.5 nm from the center of the Stokes spectrum (Fig. 1(b)). Dashed lines in (c) and (d) represent a linear fitting of the experimental curves. The inset in (a) shows the total (not filtered) Stokes power. The inset in (b) represents a detailed view of the rogue-like spike with a peak power 25 greater than the mean Stokes power.
