Triple-frequency operation of an Er-doped twincore fibre loop laser

By O.C. Graydon, W.H. Loh, R.I. Laming and L. Dong

Abstract

Simultaneous laser operation of three single-frequency modes from an inhomogeneously broadened Er-doped twincore fiber loop laser is reported. Equal output power of 390µW separation 0.5 nm and linewidth <10 kHz was measured for each mode in a travelling wave cavity comprising a single gain medium. In addition up to eight wavelength operation has been observed, demonstrating that twincore EDFAs can provide channel equalization in an eight-channel multiamplifier optical network
