In this paper, based on a linear polarized, white noise signal (WNS) phase modulated all fiber amplifier, the self-pulsing characteristics of polarization maintaining (PM) amplifier at the different phase modulation parameters with the same linewidth are analyzed experimentally. It is demonstrated that the self-pulsing threshold is closely related to the details of the modulation spectrum affected by the frequency and the signal power of the WNS, and it is near impossible to calculate by the linewidth. Besides, by suppressing the self-pulsing effect, we obtain an output of 2009 W with a linewidth of 22 GHz. The polarization extinction ratio (PER) is larger than 15 dB, and the M2 is lower than 1.2.
In this paper, we demonstrate 47 GHz linear polarized fiber amplifier injected by a simple fiber oscillator laser seed source with narrow linewidth and near diffraction-limited beam quality. Output powers of 419 W, 778 W, and 1107 W are achieved with 3dB linewidth of 26.5 GHz, 41 GHz, and 47 GHz, respectively. The M2 is 1.25 in the x-direction and 1.23 in the y-direction at the maximum laser power, respectively. The measured PER is large than 96% during the power scaling process. However, The SRS is observed when the laser power is 1107, the SNR is about 47dB, which means that the SRS effect has become a serious limitation for further power scaling of such PM-amplifier seeded by the fiber oscillator laser seed source.
