Research on a novel composite structure Er³⁺-doped DBR fiber laser with a π-phase shifted FBG.


A simple composite cavity structure Er³⁺-doped fiber laser was proposed and demonstrated experimentally. The resonant cavity consists of a pair of uniform fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) and a π-phase shifted FBG. By introducing the π-phase shifted FBG into the cavity as the selective wavelength component, it can increase the effective length of the laser cavity and suppress the multi-longitudinal modes simultaneously. The narrow linewidth of 900 Hz and low RIN of -95 dB/Hz were obtained. And the lasing wavelength was rather stable with the pump power changing. The SMRS was more than 67 dB. The results show that the proposed fiber laser has a good performance and considerable potential application for fiber sensor and optical communication.
