Abstract

Single longitudinal mode and single polarization are basic requirements of high performance fiber lasers, while their realizations are nontrivial, owing to the long laser cavity and lack of polarization selection of ordinary optical fibers. Here, we demonstrate an all-fiber narrow-linewidth laser realized on an external high-Q fiber ring, with combined functions of single-longitude-mode selection and linewidth reduction. A single-longitude-mode laser with a high polarization extinction ratio of ${\sim}{40}\;{\rm dB}$ and low white frequency noise at ${0.3}\;{{\rm Hz}^2}/{\rm Hz}$ is achieved, corresponding to a fundamental linewidth of ${\sim}{0.92}\;{\rm Hz}$. Using all non-polarization fiber components and ordinary gain fiber, our scheme shows the realization of narrow-linewidth single-polarization fiber lasers in a simple and cost-effective way, promising for broadband applications.
