Large dynamic range operation of ultra-higher number MWFLs affected by MZI-SI

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This report presents a large dynamic operation of wavelength numbers of laser lines that have been periodically filtered using an MZI-SI filter effect. A 70 nm span range for a wider periodic comb filter with 0.60 nm wavelength spacing was achieved through an advanced triple-loop ring-cavity fiber laser with a combination of MZI-SI. Almost all of the best 95 numbers of wavelengths are flattened at 6 dB of peak power fluctuation in a 52 nm range. By adjusting the rotation angles of a polarization controller (PC), the ultra-wide range multiwavelength spectrum has been shifted by 36 nm in a range from 1522.8-1558.6 nm.
