Continuous and discrete single-frequency tuning in the 1.5-μm wavelength region are demonstrated by incorporation of erbium:ytterbium phosphosilicate fibers in single and compound fiber Fabry–Perot cavity configurations. Continuous wavelength tuning was obtained over 3.3 nm in a single-cavity laser of 218-μm cavity length. Discrete wavelength tuning was achieved over 9.59 nm in a compound-cavity laser having a 2-mm gain section.
