Intracavity pumped distributed feedback erbium fiber laser
W.H.Loh, Z.Harutjunian, B.N.Samson and R.I.Laming
An intracavity pumping scheme for achieving higher output powers from 1.55 μm DFB fiber lasers is proposed and demonstrated. By placing the DFB laser inside the cavity of a Yb3+-fiber laser, up to 3 times higher power has been obtained when compared to the more conventional direct pumping approach.
