Abstract

A stable and flattened quadruple-wavelength laser system is proposed and experimentally investigated. The laser consists of an external injection Fabry-Pérot laser diode (FP-LD) and a stimulated-Brillouin-scattering (SBS)-assisted filter. In the measurement, the power difference (ΔP) of the lasing quadruple-wavelength can be enhanced within 2.0 dB by SBS-assisted filtering after 22-km single-mode fiber (SMF) propagation. In addition, we can change the two injected wavelengths for tuning the quadruple-wavelength. Besides, the output stability of the proposed laser has been studied and analyzed.
