Weak feedback assisted random fiber laser from 45°-tilted fiber Bragg grating.

Abstract

We have demonstrated the realization of a high-polarization random fiber laser (RFL) output based on the hybrid Raman and Erbium gain with the tailored effect provided by a 45°-tilted fiber Bragg grating (45°-TFBG), revealing an improvement in the polarization extinction ratio (PER) and achieving a PER of ~15.3 dB. The hybrid RFL system incorporating the 45°-TFBG has been systematically characterized. The random lasing wavelength can be fixed under the extremely weak feedback effect of the 45°-TFBG with reflectivity of 0.09%. In addition, numerical simulation has verified that the weak feedback can boost the random lasing emission with fixed wavelength using a power balance model, which is in good accordance with the experiment results.
