Enhancement of multiwavelength generation in the L-band by using a novel Brillouin-Erbium fiber laser with a passive EDF booster section.

Abstract

We demonstrate a novel scheme to generate multiple wavelengths in the L-band using a Brillouin-Erbium fiber laser. Our scheme utilizes extraneous amplified spontaneous emission in the C-band as a secondary pump source for a passive Erbium-doped fiber gain section along the cavity. The Brillouin gain medium is generated by the 6.7 km long of single mode fiber (SMF-28). We experimentally demonstrate that a total of 28 stable output channels with a spacing of 0.089 nm can be generated using our new scheme. This represents a 33% increase in the number of wavelengths generated compared with conventional schemes.
