Abstract
A highly efficient and high power Raman fiber laser was developed based on the use of broadband Fiber Bragg gratings as optical couplers. The broadening of the Stokes signal is analyzed in both cases where the laser emission is restricted or not by the FBGs bandwidth. Since broadband fiber Bragg gratings are involved, the effects of cladding mode losses have to be considered. In order to reduce overall losses in the cavity, an optimal cavity configuration has been determined based on the physical orientation of the fiber Bragg gratings.
