Description/Abstract

Line-narrowing in the output spectrum of an Nd-doped silica-fiber laser with spectrally flat reflectors is interpreted to indicate substantial homogenous contribution to the 1.09µm fluorescent linewidth. Using a fiber Bragg-reflector, frequency-stable operation with 100GHz bandwidth is obtained, dominated by power broadening and spectral hole burning.
