We present a narrow linewidth, injection-seeded Q-switched Er fiber ring oscillator, that provides over 600 /spl mu/W of average output power at 500 Hz, with 1.2 /spl mu/J per pulse, before the output appears to be significantly affected by stimulated Brillouin scattering. This laser configuration provides multiple advantages in LIDAR systems because it offers the possibility of broad and rapid tunability.
