A single-longitudinal-mode erbium-doped fiber laser with passive multiple-ring-cavity (MRC) is proposed. The laser is fundamentally structured by inserting three different short ring cavities, which serve as mode filters, into the main cavity. When combined with a mode-restricting intracavity fiber Bragg grating, the MRC resonator ensures single- longitudinal-mode laser oscillation. The laser can successfully suppress the side-mode frequencies up to 1 GHz, and provide an output power of 23 mW with a side-mode suppression ratio of 51 dB at 1533 nm. The short-term linewidth of the laser output measured is about 2 kHz. The ability of this fiber laser as an AM transmitter source is also demonstrated.
