Abstract

We present the first experimental demonstration of a resolvable mode structure with spacing c 2 n L in the RF spectra of ultralong Raman fiber lasers. The longest ever demonstrated laser cavity ( L = 84 km ) , RF peaks of 100 Hz width and spacing 1 kHz have been observed at low intracavity powers. The width of the peaks increases linearly with growing intracavity power and is almost independent of fiber length.
