Abstract

A compact 2 kHz linewidth single frequency microfiber ring laser is demonstrated. Microfiber, with a diameter of 1.88 μm, which is drawn from an Er3+/Yb3+ co-doped phosphate glass fiber, serves as the gain medium. By using this microfiber, a double-knot resonator with a total length of 1.75 mm is constructed. Based on this resonator, a narrow linewidth single frequency laser with output power higher than 0.95 μW is obtained at the wavelength of 1536.1 nm. The linewidth of this microfiber laser is as narrow as 2 kHz, and the side-mode-suppression ratio is higher than 38 dB.
