Actively Mode-locked Multiwavelength Fibre Ring Laser Incorporating a Lyot Filter, Hybrid Gain Medium and Birefringence Compensated LiNbO3 Modulator

Abstract

A lyot filter based actively mode-locked multiwavelength fibre ring laser with a hybrid gain medium, consisting of an SOA and EDFA, is presented. Simultaneous mode-locking of up to 8 wavelength channels at 10 GHz is realised using a LiNbO<sub>3</sub> based Mach-Zehnder intensity modulator. A wavelength channel spacing of 100 GHz is obtained via appropriate… (More)
