Abstract

A single-pass backward configuration superfluorescent fiber source (SFS) based on erbium-doped photonic crystal fiber (EDPCF) with a high mean wavelength stability was proposed. The EDPCF was used to improve the intrinsic temperature dependence of the SFS. Using the optimal EDPCF length of 24.2 m and pump power of 204 mW, a 20.7 ppm mean wavelength stability of a prototype SFS was demonstrated with increased temperature from 40°C to 60 °C. The mean wavelength had an ultra stability of 10.3 ppm with increased temperature from 20°C to 60 °C.
