Abstract
An erbium-doped fiber ring laser, with a single- longitudinal-mode, operating at 1548.5 nm, has achieved traveling wave operation without the use of an optical isolator. The unidirectional operation is guaranteed by a combination of an output coupler and an external fiber Bragg grating. The laser can provide up to 19.6 mW output power. The linewidth of the laser was measured to be < 24 kHz.
