Abstract

In this work, a wavelength-switchable erbium-doped fiber (EDF) glasses-type compound-ring (GTCR) laser with stable single-longitudinal-mode (SLM) oscillation is proposed and presented. In the experiment, to accomplish wavelength-tunable operation, a silicon-micro-ring-resonator (SiMRR) is utilized inside the ring cavity, when the birefringent loss of EDF laser is adjusted properly. Moreover, the GTCR configuration is proposed to as the mode-filter for suppressing the multi-longitudinal-mode (MLM) to achieve the SLM oscillation. Here, the measured linewidth of output wavelength is ∼61 kHz. The output stabilities of the proposed SiMRR EDF compound-ring laser are also discussed experimentally.
