Abstract
Broadband discrete and continuous tuning of erbium-doped fiber lasers is demonstrated in this paper. First, an exact multiple of 100 GHz frequency step-tunable L band erbium-doped fiber ring laser is presented. Precise multiple of 100 GHz step-tunability is obtain by proper angle positioning of a 100 GHz Fabry-Perot micro etalon in the laser cavity. Secondly, continuous tuning over 90 nm is shown in a laser using gain-band switching between C and L band EDFAs. Lastly, a tunable laser design that uses a single gain medium to obtain 100 nm of tuning in the C and L bands is demonstrated.
