Controllable Wavelength Channels for Multiwavelength Brillouin Bismuth/Erbium Based Fiber Laser

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 9, 9-18, 2009
Abstract
We propose and demonstrate a Multiwavelength Brillouin Bismuth/Erbium Fibre Laser (MBBEFL) with the ability to control the number of wavelength channels generated. A multi-wavelength comb output is obtained using a 7.7 km DCF as a non linear gain medium to generate Stokes wavelengths through the process of Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS). The DCF is pumped by a Raman pump source at 400 mW to lower the dispersion loss and promote the generation of the Stokes wavelengths. A 49 cm long Bismuth based Erbium Doped Fibre (Bi-EDF) is used as an optical amplifier to provide the necessary gain for the Brillouin Pump and also act as the gain medium for the generated Stokes signal.
