Abstract

An overview is given of the demonstration of a stable laser source capable of generating up to 20 wavelengths, with a 100 GHz line spacing and linewidth less than 1,25GHz. The source operates at room temperature and uses an SOA as gain medium, a polarization maintaining fiber based Lyot filter and two nonlinear optical loop mirrors. By using NOLMs as reflectors to form a linear cavity and by using only low loss, fiber components, the end-to-end loss in the cavity is minimized and thus, more channels may oscillate.
