Abstract

We demonstrate an environmentally stable Kerr-type mode-locked erbium fiber laser producing 360-fs near-bandwidth-limited pulses. Environmentally stable operation is possible in the presence of nonpolarization-maintaining fiber components provided that their overall length is short compared with the length of the polarization-maintaining fiber components. The pulses are generated at a stable repetition rate of 27 MHz and have an energy content of 60 pJ.
