The impact of booster section length made from passive erbium-doped fiber (EDF) on the L-band multiwavelength Brillouin-Erbium fiber laser (MBEFL) is studied experimentally in this paper. The influence on the performance of MBEFL in term of number of generated Stokes lines, tuning range and lasing threshold were investigated. A comparison was made between MBEFL without a booster section and with booster sections of different lengths. Through comparative study and at fixed BP power and 100mW of 1480 pump power, longer passive EDF length of 5m exhibits the highest average number of Stokes lines of 23 with tuning range of 14nm. In contrast, shorter passive EDF length of 1m shows the highest tuning range of 17nm and an average number of 21 Stokes lines.
