Description/Abstract

A compact tunable single-mode fiber laser is developed by using a novel combination of high-gain erbium: ytterbium (Er:Yb) phosphate fiber and fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) cavity configurations. Experiments demonstrate the shortest Er:Yb phosphate FFP laser ever reported, which has a 100µm cavity length with a continuous wavelength tuning range over 4.52nm, as limited by the sharp fiber gain peak. In addition, an alternative 3-mirror laser design has also demonstrated single-mode lasing operation.
