Abstract

Inhomogeneous loss generated by multimode laser linewidth broadening in an optical fiber is experimentally studied. With this mechanism, multiwavelength lasing is achieved by use of either fiber Raman gain or erbium-doped fiber gain. Through various pump powers and optical filter bandwidths, the relationship between inhomogeneous loss and the performance of a multiwavelength fiber laser is studied, and a physical explanation is provided.
