Abstract
An erbium doped fiber ring laser (EDFRL) that incorporates four non-adiabatic concatenated single-mode fiber tapers (acting as tunable filter in the laser cavity) is presented. These concatenated fiber tapers integrates a filter with a narrower band-pass and a higher modulation depth than a single taper. The tuning of this filter was implemented applying a controlled perturbation in the fiber taper. The proposed laser architecture was successfully demonstrated in the laboratory in which a tuning range of 20.8nm (1544.5nm-1565.3nm) were measured.
