Abstract

In this demonstration, we propose and experimentally investigate a broad and stable wavelength-tuning fiber laser employing a C-band erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) and coupled-ring cavity scheme. Based on the proposed laser scheme, the wavelength-tuning range can be tuned in S- to C-bands (from 1510.0 to 1562.0 nm) due to the properly control of cavity loss. In addition, the performances of side-mode suppression ratio (SMSR), optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR), and output power and wavelength are also discussed and analyzed over the wavelength-tuning range.
