Abstract
In this paper, a ring cavity passively mode-locked fiber laser using a semiconductor saturable absorber mirror as saturable absorber and a fiber Bragg grating as dispersion compensator, is proposed and experimentally demonstrated, its output performance is discussed. Stable mode-locking spectrum with 3dB bandwidth of 3.2nm, center wavelength of 1555.8nm and average output power of 0.32mW is observed at the pump power of 110mW. The pulse repetition rate is 25 MHz, as determined by the cavity length of ~8m in case of the output sech2 transform-limited pulse, the output pulses duration of 0.79ps and single pulse energy of 12.64pJ are obtained.
