Ultra-low feedback fibre end termination geometry for high power fibre source applications

Ultra-low feedback fibre end termination geometry for high power fibre source applications
Ultra-low feedback fibre end termination geometry for high power fibre source applications
Optical fibre end termination techniques are very important in the development of fibre-based optical communication systems and high-power fibre sources in laser, amplifier and superfluorescent configurations. There are many situations where unwanted optical feedback from a fibre end-facet can be very detrimental to the performance of the fibre source. For example, in laser configurations in which an external cavity is employed to extend the functionality (e.g. for Q-switching, mode-locking or wavelength tuning), then feedback from the fibre end-facet adjacent to the external cavity will compete with the feedback provided by the external cavity itself and hence may impact adversely on the laser output characteristics.

Abstract

Optical fibre end termination techniques are very important in the development of fibre-based optical communication systems and high-power fibre sources in laser, amplifier and superfluorescent configurations. There are many situations where unwanted optical feedback from a fibre end-facet can be very detrimental to the performance of the fibre source. For example, in laser configurations in which an external cavity is employed to extend the functionality (e.g. for Q-switching, mode-locking or wavelength tuning), then feedback from the fibre end-facet adjacent to the external cavity will compete with the feedback provided by the external cavity itself and hence may impact adversely on the laser output characteristics.
