Abstract

We report the inscription of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) into a nonphotosensitive Er-doped fiber by using a phase-mask scanning technique with near IR femtosecond laser pulses. A grating of 40 mm length with a period of 1.075 μ m was realized. We measured transmission losses of 18.9 dB at λ = 1554.5 nm with a FWHM bandwidth of 0.15 nm . By pumping the fiber containing the fabricated FBG, it was possible to realize a fiber laser with an output power of 38 mW , a slope efficiency of 21.1%, and low noise ( SNR = 60 dB ) .
