Abstract

Fiber lasers are attractive candidates for convenient and compact sources of short optical pulses. Various passively mode-locked fiber lasers have been demonstrated by incorporating fiber loops and ring configuration, which, however, depend sensitively on the birefringent state of the fiber. A linear cavity design, though, should be impervious to changes in the birefringence and hence may be more desirable. We report here the successful realization of such a configuration.
