Broadband Superfluorescent Fiber Laser using Single-mode Doped Silica Fiber Combinations
We demonstrate the possibility of broadening the emissions spectra of superfluorescent fiber lasers by combinations of different kinds of single-mode doped silica fibers. We obtained an optical bandwidth of more than 70 nm (FWHM) between 1030 and 1100 nm using Nd:Cs, Nd:Ge, and Yb-doped fibers. The total output power measured from the single-mode fibers was more than 100 μW in a single-pass configuration.
