We have demonstrated a low threshold all fiber laser based on a 9.68 m-long small core Erbium doped photonic crystal fiber (PCF) and also presented results from two separate device experiments. The threshold and maximum output power of the laser are 6.72 mW and 82.6 mW, respectively. Fiber loop mirrors is used as resonator mirrors. The overall system is all-fibered and with low threshold. The PCF we used as gain medium with 9.68 m long, 3.34 μm mode diameter, 0.143 numerical aperture, 1000 ppm doped concentration, 545 dB/km transmission attenuation coefficient to 1310 nm laser. A single-mode diode laser, centered at 980 nm, was used as pump source and the maximum power was 400 mW.
