Harmonically mode-locked fiber ring laser with an internal Fabry-Perot stabilizer for soliton transmission.


We describe a modulator-driven, erbium-fiber ring laser that produces chirp-free pulses with width adjustable over the range of 5 to 100 ps. A high-finesse Fabry-Perot ├ętalon with a free spectral range equal to the 2.5-GHz laser repetition rate eliminates unwanted laser ring modes and stabilizes the pulse amplitude. Using this laser, we have extended the error-free distance of a series of soliton transmission experiments by 2000-3000 km over previous results with a mode-locked semiconductor laser.
