Abstract
A novel mode-locked erbium-ytterbium fiber laser operating at 1550 nm using multiple quantum well (MQW) saturable absorbers was developed. The laser was constructed in a Fabry-Perot configuration using a fiber Bragg grating as a front reflector and a fiber Bragg grating output as a back reflector of the laser cavity. The passive mode-locking element placed inside the laser cavity is a 75 period InGaAs/InAlAs MQW saturable absorber grown lattice matched on an InP substrate. The output of the laser was taken through the other available port of a wavelength-division demultiplexer. The laser produced mode-locked output pulse trains at 16.67-MHz repetition rate and 10 mW of average output power.
