Fiber components have now reached a maturity where they can be assembled into complex fiber circuits capable of functions such as soliton generation, optical demultiplexing, and logic. Tunable fiber lasers now cover the wavelength range from 400nm to 3.4µm, virtually continuously, with diode-pumped output powers up to 5W. New components, for example, photorefractive fiber gratings, have had a major impact on the development of quiet fiber lasers with linewidths as low as a few kiloHertz and suggest the possibility of fiber DFB lasers. The rapid progress of these and other fiber components is reviewed.
