Abstract
A novel method to suppress noise in a high harmonically mode-locked erbium fiber laser with external optical modulator using DFB-laser diodes is presented. The DFB-diode laser played both roles as external-cavity modulator and as stabilizer. The driving frequency is of 2.5 GHz and the wavelength difference between DFB-diode laser emission and fiber laser dominant was adjusted in range of +/- 2 nm. The fiber laser modulation frequencies can be tunable at 2.5; 5 and 10 GHz by the adjusting an external laser diode modulation rounding 2.5 GHz +/- 66 KHz. A fiber laser so stabilized has enabled at 2.5 or 5 GHz remaining error free for more 4 hours with nearly transform-limited pulse width of 25-35 ps.
