Abstract
A dual-wavelength narrow-linewidth laser system, with ultranarrow wavelength spacing, is proposed and demonstrated. The operation principle of the laser system is based on the pump-induced thermal effects of the Er-Yb-doped fiber distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser. We designed and constructed a common Er-Yb-doped DBR fiber laser with proper parameters. With the pump power of the DBR laser increasing, the Bragg wavelengths and the bandwidths of the two gratings will change unequally. When the laser is pumped with 45 mW, we obtain stable dual-wavelength lasing with a 3-dB bandwidth of ≈0.014 nm and a wavelength spacing of ≈0.055 nm.
