Dual-wavelength EDF laser outputing six kinds of different lasing lines

A novel switchable dual-wavelength erbium-doped fiber laser using a linear cavity structure was proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Cavity mirrors of this laser consisted of two Sagnac loops. The left loop consisted of a 3 dB fiber coupler (FC), a three-rings type of polarization controller (PC) and a phase shifted fiber grating. The right loop consisted of other same 3 dB FC and a length of 2 m panda-type polarization-maintaining fiber. The two loops became two comb filters to jointly produce the multi-wavelength output. After the PC was adjusted slowly, the laser could switch flexibly to output six kinds of different lasing lines. All of lasing lines had a narrow linewidth less than 1.12 nm and the optical signal-to-noise ratio of more than 37 dB..
