Stabilization of a Fourier domain mode-locked (FDML) laser was achieved in a wide temperature range of over 30 degrees by adaptively tuning the sweep rate without using any complicated or massive temperature control equipment. The proposed FDML laser in a fiber ring cavity configuration consists of an optical tunable filter based on a KTN (KTa1-xNbxO3) scanner. The FDML laser operates at the sweep rate of around 200 kHz. The output properties show an output power of 2 mW and coherence lengths of 8.5 mm for the sweep range of 100 nm and 11 mm for that of 80 nm at the center wavelength of 1300 nm.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
