We report how the linewidth and line shape of a tunable semiconductor-optical-amplifier-based fiber ring laser can be actively adjusted by applying an intracavity frequency modulation to the laser. Frequency-modulated laser operation is achieved by driving the phase modulator frequency close to the cavity axial-mode spacing, leading to a constant-amplitude(More)
Distributed feedback (DFB) fiber lasers have been demonstrated to be excellent narrow-linewidth (kilohertz range) single-frequency laser sources. However, this type of laser is normally limited to rare-earth-doped fibers. Raman gain offers an alternative, operating at any arbitrary wavelength. We demonstrate here linearly polarized, single-frequency, DFB(More)
A simple method for achieving a widely tunable narrow-linewidth, single polarization state and single transverse mode lasing oscillation from a commercially available multimode vertical cavity surface-emitting laser by use of a coupled cavity is reported. The laser has a wavelength tuning range of more than 5 nm along 850 nm, a side-mode suppression ratio(More)
